How To Save on Energy Costs With Your Air Conditioner

How To Save on Energy Costs With Your Air Conditioner

It's possible for any type or brand of air conditioner to become inefficient. When this happens, the system needs more electricity to work, but it works at only half of its normal output. Here are several ways to reduce the energy costs of your air conditioner.

Maintain the A/C Seasonally
Before the season begins, schedule an HVAC maintenance service with A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto. Make sure that your system is working properly and not using more electricity than necessary. For instance, an A/C with a clogged air filter will use a lot of energy and work at half of its efficiency level.

Get Repairs Done
Get repairs done on your air conditioner whenever the work is needed. A common mistake that homeowners make is waiting until the last minute to get repairs done. In the meantime, the A/C works less and less efficiently until it breaks down completely. You'll save hundreds of dollars by getting a needed repair done right away.

Install an Energy-Monitoring Device
Monitoring is the best way to know whether or not your home is using too much electricity. Install a device that allows you to monitor the energy output for the entire household. Some devices tell you the types of appliances that are consuming the most energy and the amount of power per day, week or year.

Buy a Newer, More Energy-Efficient Air Conditioner
Consider replacing your old, energy-wasting A/C with a more energy-efficient one. Most A/C manufacturers put energy efficiency at the very top of their to-do lists. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides a list of appliances made by Energy Star. Look for EER ratings that indicate the level of energy efficiency with the higher ratings being more efficient.

It takes more than using the A/C less often to cut energy costs. Regular maintainence and nesseacary repairs are also needed to make sure your A/C is performing at its best. If you are in need of any HVAC services or a new air conditioner, A Plus Quality is here to help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or

FAQ

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337
