Top 10 A/C Energy Saving Tips

Are you searching for an HVAC company to replace or repair your system? Choosing the best HVAC company is a priority. Even with a new HVAC system, choosing a reliable and knowledgeable HVAC company to take care of upkeep will help extend the life of your unit and keep it performing its best throughout the year. Read these 5 tips to ponder while selecting a HVAC contractor:

  1. Set your thermostat to 78 degrees (F) in the summer. Every degree of extra cooling will increase energy usage 6% to 8%.Turn ceiling fans off when no one is in the room

  2. Clean or change your A/C filter once a month.

  3. Check your A/C ducts for leaks.

  4. Setting your thermostat to a lower temperature than normal will not cool your home faster.

  5. Use ceiling or portable fans. Fans move the air and make the room feel four to six degrees cooler, and use much less energy than the air conditioner

  6. Keep windows and doors shut tight. Going in and out of the house repeatedly will make your air conditioner work harder.

  7. Use shades or curtains to block the sun and heat during warm weather.

  8. Make sure your air conditioner is clean. Washing the outside coils and clearing high grass and debris will prevent blockage of the air flow.

  9. Make sure your home is well-insulated.

  10. Consider buying a new A/C system if yours is not performing well or is out dated.
