How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during hot months. They provide comfort when the heat in Louisville is at its worst and helps keep your environment just as you’d like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost premier air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we surely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At Becht/Givens Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save some on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Swap your home’s air filter. It’s possibly the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort isn’t its best.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, typical homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them because of duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system perform its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Becht/Givens Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner problems and your comfort is being jeopardized, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Becht/Givens Service Experts in Louisville a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
