One of the largest appliances in an apartment is air conditioning system. It’s no wonder that it takes up such a large portion of energy bills with so many moving parts and electrical components. However, higher-than-average energy bills should be cause for alarm, even during a particularly warm month. You want to save some money on air conditioning. We put together this guide about 3 ways you may be actually be paying too much to cool your home.
If you put off repairs for too long, a faulty component may only become worse over time. And when a component has too much wear and tear, it simply cannot perform as it is supposed to. Sometimes, a repair need seems minor. For example, you may notice that your system takes a long time to cool your home. It might be bearable for you and your family. This problem may be due to low refrigerant or dirty parts. It means that your air conditioning system must work much harder to cool your home, consuming a lot of energy in the process.
The filter helps keep dust and contaminants out of the air in your home, but a dirty filter can affect the performance of your air conditioner. This is because the blower fan that sucks in indoor air must direct a certain amount of airflow over the evaporator coil. This will help it to properly convert refrigerant into a gas and remove heat from the home. Dirty filters inhibit airflow, which may lead the evaporator coil to freeze and greatly reduce the efficiency of your unit.
Finally, you may be paying too much for your AC system if you don’t schedule maintenance once a year with a technician. During maintenance, a technician cleans, inspects, and adjusts various parts of your system. It which can increase the efficiency of your system.
