How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the greatest asset of a home during warmer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Clearwater is at its worst and helps keep your environment just like you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost premier air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can do yourself.

At Midway Services, we think it makes sense that you want to save some on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we compiled this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s possibly the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort suffers.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, most homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them as a result of duct leaks and other duct problems.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system perform its job because airflow isn’t being inhibited.
  • Air conditioner service. Pros recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Midway Services. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being compromised, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to issues with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Midway Services in Clearwater a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
