During the hot summer months there are some methods to be sure that your air conditioning system is operating at its most efficient and effective level. According to Goettl Air Conditioning, an Arizona based HVAC company, you can check the following tips and make sure you can save a lot of money on air conditioning bills.
Make sure that your outside unit is clear of debris and plants around it. Plants can grow up around it and into it, so have at least two feet of clearance. Also take the cover off and get out the garden hose to clean out dirt and debris from the coils.
The filters on your HVAC system should be replaced every 90 days which will cause your unit to operate more efficiently.
The use of ceiling fans helps to circulate cooler air around the room in which they are located. With more cool air passing by the thermostat, it will not start the air conditioning as often. According to the US Department of Energy the thermostat can be set to a full four degrees higher and people will not feel any warmer when ceiling fans are in use.
Installation of a “smart” thermostat so that it can be set to higher temperatures at specific times, such as when you are at work, shopping, on a trip and so forth. Some thermostats can sense when no one is home and they will set themselves accordingly. There is no sense in paying for lower temperatures when you are not there.
