Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Litchfield Park, most people will start truly thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the foreseeable future. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your pocket book.
Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this year, ponder these tips:
- Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help impact the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it could also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
- Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees warmer than usual is a very simple way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees warmer can do for your energy bills.
- Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be around for a while? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as crucial.
- Weatherstripping: whether it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a couple minutes to walk around your home and check your windows and doors and decide if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.
Comfort is something we’re always searching for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These couple tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your air conditioner and probably save a few bucks.
