By Eco Edge Systems

March 29, 2024

At EcoEdge Systems, we understand the challenges of keeping your home cool during the hotter months. Many homeowners face the dilemma of their central air conditioning systems working tirelessly without significantly lowering indoor temperatures, even when setting the thermostat to a comfortable 75 degrees. To address this, we offer three key strategies to enhance the efficiency of your central air conditioning.

1. Opt for Professional Annual Maintenance

The longevity and optimal performance of your air conditioning system are crucial to us at EcoEdge Systems. That’s why we emphasize the importance of professional maintenance. By scheduling an annual check-up with one of our skilled HVAC technicians every spring, you ensure that your unit is not only thoroughly inspected but also cleaned and adjusted to operate at its best. This proactive measure can identify and rectify potential issues that might hinder your system’s efficiency. To make this essential maintenance more affordable, EcoEdge Systems offers an annual HVAC maintenance contract, covering both your air conditioner and furnace, ensuring your home’s comfort throughout the year.

2. Clean Your Air Vents and Replace Filters Regularly

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your air conditioning system’s efficiency is by regularly changing the air filters. At EcoEdge Systems, we stress this not as a mere suggestion but as a critical component of your system’s upkeep. A clean filter dramatically improves airflow and cooling efficiency, a fact easily verified by comparing a new filter to one that’s been in use. During peak usage months, we recommend replacing filters monthly. Additionally, knowing the location of your return air vents is crucial. Whether it’s a singular filter alongside the furnace or individual filters at each vent, keeping these areas clean by vacuuming them thoroughly ensures optimal air circulation throughout your home.

3. Cleaning of the Outdoor Condenser Coils

The outdoor unit of your air conditioning system, or the condenser, requires clear space and regular cleaning to function efficiently. EcoEdge Systems recommends cleaning the condenser coils, a task that can make a significant difference.  A mild soapy solution is applied through the unit’s exterior can help remove accumulated dirt and debris from the coils.

Safety First

We at EcoEdge Systems prioritize your safety above all. Always ensure the power is disconnected before attempting any maintenance on your HVAC system. This precaution cannot be overstated and is crucial for avoiding potential hazards.
