How Can I Improve the Efficiency of My Air Conditioning System?

Many inefficiencies result from poor maintenance and unattended parts that need repair. The following issues can cause your system to overwork and underdeliver:

  • Refrigerant leaks. It’s not uncommon for your refrigerant line to develop a hole or come loose from the connection. You may notice a hissing or gurgling sound. You’re unlikely to see pools of refrigerant because it evaporates quickly. If your system isn’t properly charged, it won’t cool efficiently.
  • Frozen coils. Frozen coils cause pools of water as they melt when the system is downcycling. A visual inspection shows ice on the coils. Frozen coils inhibit the system’s ability to cool properly and decrease overall efficiency.
  • Blocked vents. Vents and ductwork can become blocked by dust and debris gathering inside the system or by something physically blocking the vent. Whether intake or output, keep your vents clear to ensure optimum cooling.
  • Old air filters. Dirty and clogged air filters inhibit air flow and decrease your AC unit’s ability to cool your home efficiently. Change your air filter at least every three months or more frequently during wildfire season.

Regular maintenance and prompt air conditioning repair services help improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system. Aside from repairs and maintenance, you can make a few adjustments around your home to optimize your air conditioning system:

  • Add insulation to your ducts
  • Keep windows and curtains closed
  • Avoid using appliances in the hottest parts of the day
  • Use a programmable thermostat. Set it to lower while you’re home and higher when you’re away.
  • Seal any cracks and air leaks around your home, such as around windows and doors and in attics and basements.

How Often Should My Air Conditioning Unit Be Serviced?

Most air conditioners last 10 to 15 years — less if they’re neglected. Ensure the life of your system with regular annual maintenance. The best time to service your system is before you turn it on for the season.

Our seasonal air conditioner tune-up includes an inspection of all parts of the system, a thorough cleaning of the necessary components, and an efficiency and optimization test. If we uncover a problem with the system, we’ll present you with potential solutions based on your specific system and needs. 

Staying on top of home maintenance schedules can be tricky, especially when life gets busy. That’s why we offer the Trio Protection Plan. For a low monthly fee, you’ll enjoy AC maintenance service reminders, priority service, rapid response, discounts on parts and services, and annual 27-point tune-ups for your AC system in the spring and your heating system in the fall. 

How Do You Determine the Right Size of Air Conditioning Unit for My Home?

Regular maintenance and repair help prolong the service life of your air conditioning system, but you’ll eventually need a replacement. Don’t let it get you down! A new AC system usually means an updated model with better efficiency, as long as you choose the right size. The wrong size unit can use more energy than needed and lead to premature wear on the system. 

When it’s time for a new AC unit installation, one of our helpful technicians can help you determine the best size and model for your needs and budget. Sizing an air conditioner involves the following steps:

  • Determining the home’s square footage
  • Considering the home’s interior layout
  • Assessing the home for air leaks, insulation, windows, and doors

The type of system depends on whether you have existing ductwork and space for any indoor components. The final determination considers all these things, as well as your budget and any potential rebates.

We work with central air, ductless mini-splits, and window units. All our air conditioner system installations come with excellent service, attention to detail, calibration and optimization testing, and our satisfaction guarantee.
