Maintaining an air conditioner is a must do, even for those of us in Maryland. After a brutal winter, the last thing we want is an unbearably hot summer. We’ve previously written about tips for keeping your HVAC more efficient and want to expand on that even further by giving you this must read guide to all things AC.
There are three general types of air conditioners including the standard central unit, window unit, and ductless mini splits. They range in cost, function, and energy usage. The last factor is important as air conditioners use a good deal of energy. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, choosing the right air conditioner and making smart usage decisions can reduce the energy used by your air conditioner by 20% to 50%.
Choose your unit by considering the factors below.
No matter what type of system you choose, it is essential to properly maintain it. This ensures the system performs at its peak for as long as possible. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for items such as filter replacement schedule, recommended tune ups, and more.
