Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Osceola County

Cooling

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Osceola County, most homeowners will start seriously thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your wallet.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who runs 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 big impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this year, ponder these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most overlooked simple fix to help boost 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 in check.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than typical is a very easy way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a while? 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 crucial.
  • 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 check your windows and doors and decide 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 improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and probably save a few dollars.
