How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Birmingham is at its fieriest 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 professional air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can do yourself.

At Norrell Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save money on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Change your home’s air filter. It’s likely 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 difficult for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort is compromised.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, most 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 a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily 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. Professionals recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with Norrell Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner headaches 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 issues with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s most likely time for air conditioner service. Give Norrell Service Experts in Birmingham a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
