Ways To Increase Your Air Conditioner Unit’s Efficiency
Increasing the efficiency of your air conditioner can help to lessen the amount of energy it uses and the amount of money you’ll have to pay on your bill. We’re going to show you a number of ways you can help to increase its efficiency within your home.
- You should hire a professional A/C technician and have them inspect, clean and do some annual tune ups on your unit. Have the technician recharge the refrigerant if necessary and do some work on your duct system as well.
- Every month, change your air conditioning unit’s air filter so that it doesn’t get dirty and interfere with the airflow in your unit, because that will damage it.
- Switch between the use of your air conditioning unit and your fans, or even use both of them simultaneously. You can lower your cooling costs by about 3 to 5 percent when you do that. You can also set your thermostat to a temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit to ease up on the effort your unit gives off for cooling.
- You should also try to reduce excessive use of your air conditioning unit and to set the thermostat’s temperature up when you aren’t at home. That way, you can come home to a quite comfortable temperature. Also, ensure that your door and windows are kept closed while your unit is running.
