Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Boynton Beach

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 upcoming months. 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 nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this year, think about these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely 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 could also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than usual is a very basic way to save money. Comfort is still important, 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 head out 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: 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 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 couple tips are the ideal 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.
