Air Conditioning Tips

Keep Cool This Summer!

With Edmonton’s hot summers, air conditioning is becoming a necessity. The Furnace Family in Edmonton gives you their top 5 tips to improve your air conditioners efficiency.

1. Change your furnace filter regularly.

It’s important that your furnace filter is clean and changed regularly. Because the air conditioner runs on the furnaces high speed and it runs twice the air. With a dirty furnace filter, that means twice the dust is blowing into your home’s indoor air and reduced efficiency with your HVAC system.

2. Keep the unit clean.

Make sure there are no shrubs or plants around the unit. To clean your unit, shut it off and either vacuum or gently wash it with a garden hose. Remember, the unit is waterproof as it is built to run in the rain. Learn how to clean a central air conditioner. 

3. Close basement ceiling vents.

This will help push your cool air to the upper floors of the house where it is generally hotter and where you spend the most time. Cold air sinks, so your basement will remain cool and comfortable even with the vents closed.

4. Don’t turn up the thermostat when you’re not home.

Air conditioning is not as instant as heat. A properly sized unit can only lower the temperature by a degree or two per hour, so cranking the thermostat will not reduce the amount of energy used by your air conditioning while you’re away. It will cause it to work that much harder when it starts up again.

5. Have your AC serviced every two years.

This is the most important tip! Having your unit serviced at least once every two years will ensure it is working properly. There are little adjustments only a pro can do, and it will allow your unit to have a longer lifespan and run at peak efficiency.
