Making the Most of Your Energy Efficient A/C Unit

As the sun beats down on your home, you may be hoping for some sort of relief from the sweltering heat. When it comes to your air conditioning system, it is ideal to increase the air quality in your home while decreasing the amount of energy that is used. Once you’ve had a new air conditioning system installed by the NATE certified technicians at Air Treatment Company, there are some steps you can take to make it as energy efficient as possible.

Keep the Air Flowing: Make sure the air is circulating properly. Some homeowners do not realize that if a vent is blocked by an object, it decreases the energy efficiency of your unit. You can save energy usage up to 10% by making sure that your vents are unobstructed.

Get the Seal of Approval: It’s important to check that your duct work is sealed tight. Openings in your duct work can leak air and decrease overall energy efficiency of the system by 35%.

The Refrigerant Makes All the Difference: Not sure if your A/C unit is using the right refrigerant? That’s where the professional HVAC technicians from Air Treatment Company come in. We can help you find the correct refrigerant that will keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
