What Can I Do To Make My Air Conditioner More Efficient?

If you’re like most people, it’s probably difficult to imagine braving hot or humid weather without your air conditioner. However, many people tend to take their air conditioners for granted, especially if they live someplace where heat and humidity are facts of life all year round. They forget just how big a part of their home comfort their unit really is until it breaks down or starts to malfunction. If this has ever happened to you, then you know what a pain it can be!

The good news is there are things you can do to make sure your air conditioning unit remains in tip-top condition and continues to function as smoothly as possible into the future. Let’s take a look at some of the most effective. Changing Your Air Filter

Proper maintenance of your air conditioning unit’s air filter is actually the number one most important thing a homeowner can do to maintain proper efficiency levels. Dirty, clogged, or blocked air filters are actually the number one culprit when it comes to units that break down, malfunction, or just don’t seem to be getting the job done as efficiently as they should be. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 90% of issues technicians are called in to fix could have been corrected or prevented by changing the air filter more often!Making sure to replace your unit’s air conditioner 2-4 times per year comes attached to many benefits. Not only will your unit cool and dehumidify the air more efficiently, but it will help to keep dust, dirt, and allergens in the air to a minimum. It will also ensure that your unit’s motor lasts up to twice as long as it would if you let this part of your maintenance routine fall by the wayside. You should also take care to keep both indoor and outdoor vents free from blockage.

Have an Expert Inspect Your Unit Regularly

Aside from making sure you keep your unit as clean as possible, it’s important to have your air conditioner and furnace units looked at by a maintenance technician once in a while as well. This is doubly the case if you feel it isn’t running as well as it could be. A technician can help to evaluate wiring, thermostat function, energy usage and more. Have one over to service your unit once a year.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
