How To Save Energy With AC Unit

How To Save Energy With AC Unit

With many air conditioning units, there are a few ways you can conserve energy and money at home. Particularly in South Florida, our air conditioning units are long-lasting investments and used heavily year-round, even more so during the summer months. Searching for ways to keep the longevity of your air conditioning units includes keeping all the moving parts in working order for a system that lasts for years.

Simple Tips to Keep in Mind:

  1. Change Your Air Filter Regularly – Check your filter every month, especially during the times your unit is being used heavily, for any excessive dirt build-up. The recommended time to change your filter is around every three months, depending on the amount of wear. A dirty filter slows down the airflow, and the system will have to work that much harder to keep you fresh. Collecting dirt may lead to expensive, unnecessary maintenance or a system failure.
  2. Schedule Routine Maintenance – A yearly tune-up of your unit will improve efficiency and overall comfort. Consider it the same as taking your car to the dealership; the service is a must if your car is going to last years without a hitch.
  3. Sealing Ducts – The ducts that run through the attic, crawlspace, and garage should be the first places to check for seals. Any ductwork that moves air to and from a forced air furnace needs to be airtight tight to keep leakage to a minimum. If homeowners are checking their systems routinely, they will pick up on any issues and use a sealant to patch it up.
  4. Mini-Split Systems – Each room that is not being used but is still being cooled like the rest of the house is wasting energy and money. With a mini-split system, you can lower the temperature in the rooms being utilized and leave the rooms unattended warmer to save energy and usage of your air conditioning unit.

The Cooling Costs During Summer

Summer is on its way, and being Florida residents, we all know what that means, heat is on its way. And with that heat means that our air conditioning units will be working extra hard to keep our residences at the temperature level we are most accustomed too. That being the case, this extra work for your a/c unit means you will be using more energy, and therefore, have to pay more regarding an energy bill. Well, we at Cooling FX do not want that to happen and are here to give you some tips on how to cool your house during the summer months, but not have to break the bank to do so.

5 Tips to Lower Your Bill

  1. Close Your Curtains

One of your first options for lowering your house’s internal temperature is by just closing your blinds, shades, and curtains. The simple act of closing your shades can reduce the heat gained from your windows by around 45%; also, try incorporating lighter colored curtains and blinds, as they reflect more heat.

  1. Avoid Heat Buildup

It is vital that you keep any heat generating activities to a minimum when the temperature outside your home surpasses that of the inside. This includes running appliances that give off a lot of heat such as the oven or dryer. Try only to perform these activities when the sun is at its lowest during the day or has set entirely.

  1. Use Air Circulating Appliances

Just moving and displacing the air in your house will change the comfort level of your household. Remember, a fan does not lower the temperature of a home; it merely makes the air more comfortable.

  1. Run your A/C Cost-effectively

When not home, know that you do not need to have your air conditioning running at your desired comfort level. When not at home you can set it to a higher degree, this will help keep your electricity bill at a practical level. You can do this by setting your thermostat to a timer to take effect during certain times of the day, or you can change the temperature manually.Thermostat

  1. Maintain your Cooling System

Possibly the most important thing to do, a healthy A/C unit will function more efficiently and reliably. If you’re A/C is not up to date on its repairs then it will be forced to consume more energy to perform the same tasks it always has, and therefore your bill will rise.
