Now that colder weather is here to stay in Boynton Beach, most people will start really thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your check book.
Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who runs a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the ecosystem depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re looking for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this season, ponder these tips:
- 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 may also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
- Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than typical is a very basic way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees warmer can do for your energy expenses.
- 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 an extended period? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re away 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 getting out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a couple minutes 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 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 potentially save a few bucks.
