Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Safford11/12/2015Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Safford, most people will start truly 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 pocket book. Energy efficiency universally affects 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 looking for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this season, consider these pointers: 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 could also help you keep your indoor air quality high. Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than typical is a very basic way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy costs. 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 a while? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important. Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time to walk around your home and look at your windows and doors and determine 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 handful of tips are a perfect 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 dollars.
