Your customers are probably looking forward to another hot and sunny summer. However, every joy of great summer temperatures comes with slight trepidation about their air conditioning. Even if everything is operating at peak performance and they’re receiving all the cool, pleasant air they require, there’s still another thing they have to consider – costs. Nobody likes looking at rising electricity bills over the summer.
This is where you step in to help your customers offset the rising need for increased cooling with their air conditioning. It’s up to you to provide them with the top tips on how to boost the efficiency of their air conditioner and how to get the most out of every dollar they pay for their electricity bill. That’s why it’s important to know the best ways to enhance the efficiency of your customers’ air conditioning units.
How Can My Customers Boost Their AC Efficiency?
Your customers want to get the most out of their air conditioner, and that’s perfectly normal. They want to receive all the cooling they require, but they also don’t want to experience a significant spike in their electricity bills, which is perfectly understandable. Nobody likes seeing a high-energy bill.
However, not all of your customers are familiar with the tips and tricks that will help them secure a steady stream of cool air while experiencing enhanced energy efficiency of an air conditioner operating at peak capacity. This is why you should give them the knowledge they need to boost the efficiency of their air conditioning system.
Servicing Before The Summer
The most important aspect of boosting the performance of an air conditioner is scheduling regular pre-season AC service by a team of experienced professionals. This way, your customers will nip any potential problems in the bud, preventing them from developing, and ensure their AC is in the best possible condition before the start of the cooling season.
Cleaning Around The Outdoor Unit
Your customers should also clean the area surrounding their outdoor unit to ensure peak operational performance. Vegetation, debris, and dirt can block parts of their exterior unit, reducing its performance and causing it to either not deliver the required amount of cooling, or to deliver it with too much strain on the system.
Upgrading The Insulation
Proper insulation helps the air conditioner reach the desired temperatures in your customers’ properties faster. However, it also allows it to maintain the temperatures for longer periods of time without having to actively work every second of the day. Insulating their properties will significantly boost the performance of their AC.
Installing Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are a great and inexpensive way for your customers to enhance the performance of their air conditioner. Fans will help with the distribution of cool air around your customer’s property, allowing them to get more out of their AC.
Keeping Indoor Vents Clean
Another important factor that affects the operational efficacy of their air conditioner is the state of their vents. Any dirt, debris, and potential blockages present in the vents will significantly affect the AC performance, even not allowing it to reach the desired temperatures in certain areas of your customers’ homes. That’s why it’s important to inspect the vents and clean them if necessary.
Using Different Bulbs
Finally, even light bulbs can make a difference in lowering the overall temperature of the property and helping the AC work more efficiently. LED bulbs operate at cooler temperatures, emanating less heat when they’re on. This, in turn, amounts to lower indoor temperatures which, again, means that your customers’ AC won’t have to work as much to attain the comfort they need.
