Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Boynton Beach, most homeowners 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 check book.
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 year, think about these simple fixes:
- Filters: arguably the most forgotten 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 can also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
- Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very basic way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still key, 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 leave for the day or when you know you won’t be around for a bit? 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 critical.
- Weatherstripping: whether 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 little time to walk around your home and look at 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 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 money.
