Air Conditioning & Heating Energy Saving Tips

The hot Texas summer will be here before we know it. The question is, “Are you ready for it!” More importantly is your air conditioner ready for it! Running your air conditioner during the summer months can raise your energy bill significantly.

1. Cleaning your air filter can cut the energy used by 5 to 15%.

2. Keep heat-producing appliances, such as televisions or lamps, away from the thermostat.

3. Make sure the air ducts are properly insulated, especially those that pass through the attic.

4. Take a good look at the seals around doors and windows to see if weather stripping or caulk is needed.

5. Make sure blinds and drapes are closed to help reduce the sun’s thermal heat.

6. Use your fans to circulate air and supplement your air conditioner. Substituting fans for air conditioners on milder days can save up to 60% or more in energy costs.

7. Air Conditioning manufacturers recommend your thermostat be set at 78 degrees. Reducing your home’s temperature to 72 degrees could increase your cooling cost 12 to 47 percent. Also remember, setting your thermostat really low at first will not help your home cool faster. It will use more energy and if you forget to adjust it, you will be running far less efficiently than you think.

These are only a few tips that can keep your energy cost down and save you some money. In addition to these, Air Comfort Solutions recommends a complete spring air conditioning check-up. Nothing takes the place of a thoroughly cleaned air conditioning unit to keep it operating at top efficiency. However, homeowners are strongly discouraged from attempting to perform these services themselves due to the risk of electrical shock and possible shorting of electrical components. Our service and installation technicians are extensively trained to maintain the high standard of excellence that our customers deserve, and we stand behind our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Like most anything you own, you will find that through regular maintenance, repairs will be less likely and your system will last longer.
