Maximising Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency

With summer’s sweltering heat making your air conditioner your best friend, ensuring it operates at peak efficiency isn’t just about comfort—it’s also about saving money and reducing energy consumption. Regular maintenance of air conditioners ensures a longer, more energy-efficient air conditioner life. Here’s how you can keep your cooling system in top shape and how leveraging OneDios for service bookings and warranty extensions can simplify maintenance tasks.

Regular Maintenance is Key

  1. Clean or Replace Filters Regularly: The simplest yet most effective way to keep your AC running smoothly is to clean or replace its filters. Clogged filters restrict airflow, significantly reducing a system’s efficiency. For central air conditioners, filters should be checked monthly and replaced as needed during the cooling season. If you are facing any issues or need help replacing the AC filters, download the OneDios app and put in a request today.
  2. Keep Coils Clean: The evaporator and condenser coils can collect dirt over time, which reduces the system’s ability to absorb heat. Check your coils annually and clean them as necessary. Also, the area around the condenser unit should be free of debris and foliage to promote good airflow​​. Your outdoor unit will be most effective if it is clean, completely free, and clear from debris. OneDios offers professional cleaning services to ensure your AC functions at its best.
  3. Check Your Thermostat: Set your thermostat to an optimal temperature that balances comfort and energy efficiency. Avoid setting the temperature too low, as it can strain the AC and lead to excessive energy consumption. If you haven’t already, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat. This allows you to set the temperature higher when nobody is home and cool down your space before you return, saving energy and money without sacrificing comfort​​. For any query regarding temperature or thermostat settings, please call experts at OneDios.
  4. Seal and Insulate Ducts: Leaky ducts can significantly reduce your system’s efficiency. Use duct sealant or metal-backed tape to seal all seams and connections. Also, insulating ducts that run through unconditioned spaces should be considered to prevent heat loss.
  5. Ensure Proper Airflow: Check the air conditioner’s outdoor unit to ensure plants, debris, or other objects do not obstruct it. This ensures proper airflow and heat dissipation, which is crucial for efficient operation. Leaky air systems can seriously reduce efficiency. Your air conditioner may run longer than necessary due to the cool air leaking outside. Leaving doors and windows open will allow conditioned air to escape, wasting energy. Keep them closed when the AC is on.
