How To Improve Your A/C Instead of Replacing It

If you are looking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your A/C, and the cost of
an upgrade doesn’t work with your budget, then you may just want to consider improving your
A/C instead. There are various options that enable you to get more out of your air conditioning
system, without having to replace it! Save energy, stay cool, and remaing comfortable in your
home by following these simple suggestions.

Perform Regular Maintenance

By scheduling annual maintenance tune-ups, you can better ensure the performance of your
A/C and extends its efficiency and lifespan. By constantly checking and replacing your air filter,
you can better control the air quality in your home and avoid costly repairs. We also suggest
regularly checking the outside unit and removing any dirt or debris. These are easy maintenance
steps than can go a long way. Check out our other help articles to learn more about each of these
actions.

Add Insulation, Especially in the Attic

Insulation can help your home remain comfortable during winter and summer! Insulation
blocks heat exchange, meaning that cool areas can stay cool, and vice versa. In the summer, a
well insulated home can block the scorching heat from leaking inside and disrupting your cool,
indoor environment. It also helps to seal your home, preventing cool air from leaking out. The
most important place for insulation is in your attic. Not sure if you have enough? Check out our
help articles on insulation to learn more, or call ACE’s friendly staff to discuss how we can help
improve your insulation.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

By upgrading your thermostat to a programmable thermostat, you are able to directly control
your home’s temperature without even trying! You can even control the temperature settings
while you are away from home. For example, you can program your thermostat to a higher
temperature while you are away on vacation or sleeping. These little steps can help you save
time, money, and energy!
