According to the Department of Energy, using central air conditioning is part of the largest energy expense for a typical US home. In this article, Cardinal Heating & Air, the leading HVAC maintenance company in our local area, gives quick and easy tips to improve your air conditioning system’s efficiency this summer.
Use Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats can automatically adjust the temperature inside your home for different times of day or during times when you are not at home. Smart thermostats can go even further by analyzing your energy use and figuring out a pattern for optimal energy efficiency. Adjusting the temperature by a few degrees can have a noticeable effect on your energy bills.
Keep the Outdoor Condenser Unit Clean
In addition to adjusting your thermostat settings, you should also make sure that your outdoor condenser unit is clean and free of debris. This outdoor unit will work more efficiently if there is no debris to block it. This task is best left to an experienced professional company like us. We can perform a thorough, in-depth cleaning.
Close the Curtains During the Day
Solar heat can make your interior feel more uncomfortable and make it harder for your air conditioner to keep your interior cool. We recommend keeping your curtains and blinds closed during the day. Your window treatments will help keep some of the heat from warming your interior.
