As the go-to company for air conditioning repair in Sarasota, FL, we understand that everyone desires the highest level of energy efficiency for their air conditioners. Here are the easiest ways to maximize AC efficiency.

Get the Vents Cleaned Out

Keeping the vents clear of obstructions is an effective approach to increasing AC efficiency. Walk around the house and make a mental note of where all the vents are. Remember to clean out the vents in your home. Regular cleaning of the vents prevents them from becoming obstructed and may reduce the likelihood of issues that may require air conditioning replacement in the long term.

De-Clog the Drain Line

Located close to the indoor cooling coil of the system is a drain. You’ll typically find this in the basement (if you have a basement). You should keep your air conditioner’s drain free of debris. You can do this by pouring chlorine bleach down it and then flushing it with water. You may avoid any water-related problems by keeping the drain line clear. Inefficient operation of the air conditioner is likely if the drain line becomes clogged. De-clogging is an essential part of air conditioning maintenance.

Close Your Doors and Windows

This is one of the most basic, yet effective ways of increasing AC efficiency that you can do right after an air conditioning installation. To keep your room cooler, close the blinds or draw the curtains. When optimizing a system, this is of paramount importance. Reduce the amount of heat entering your home by closing your windows and doors.
