Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Litchfield Park

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Litchfield Park, most homeowners will start seriously 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 wallet.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who uses 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 huge impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this season, think about these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most forgotten simple fix to help better 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 high.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very simple way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy costs.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be around for a while? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if 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 inspect your windows and doors and figure out 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 few tips are a perfect 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.
