Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Stuart

Cooling

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Stuart, most homeowners will start seriously thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature 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 year, consider these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most overlooked simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it can also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very basic way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees warmer can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a while? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and look at 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 the ideal place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner and probably save a few dollars.
