Is Your A/C Running Efficiently?

Living here in Massachusetts, you know that summers can get pretty hot. You’d probably like to make sure that your air conditioner runs at peak efficiency. Keep on reading–we’ll let you know what to look for when making sure your A/C is keeping you cool.

A/C Efficiency Checklist

  • Check your air ducts. Check your air ducts frequently for clogs, blockages, and dirt. Dirty air ducts force your A/C to work harder to blow cool air, which really decreases energy efficiency.
  • Take a look at your thermostat. Make sure your thermostat is working for you. Getting a programmable thermostat will save you countless hours of your A/C’s operation, improving your A/C’s energy efficiency.
  • Check temperatures in every room. One room’s temperature differing from the rest of your home could signal that your air isn’t distributing evenly. In this case, call us, and we’ll make sure your unit works properly.
  • Consider your A/C’s age. Older systems are less efficient than new high-efficiency equipment. It’s time to start thinking about getting a new HVAC system if your current one is over 10 years old.

You can rest assured that your air conditioner is likely getting the job done if your ducts are clean, your thermostat reads the correct temperature, your home distributes cool air evenly, and your A/C system isn’t too old. At Bridgewater, your comfort is our priority. If you notice your A/C isn’t keeping you cool, give us a call. We’re happy to help.
