Air Conditioning Energy Saving Tips

energy saving

In most Florida homes, the air conditioning system is the single biggest energy consumer. Therefore, using your system efficiently can significantly reduce your monthly electric bill.

These 8 simple tips will help you do just that…

#1. When it comes to air conditioners, the lower you go, the more money you blow. Set your thermostat to the highest temperature you’re comfortable with. Keeping the thermostat 10 to 15 degrees higher than what you’re used to for 8 hours a day will knock about 10% off your cooling costs.

#2. You may not want to turn your air conditioner all the way off when you leave the house but setting the temperature to 80 degrees while you’re away from home will make a big dent in your electric bill.

#3. Using fans in conjunction with your air conditioning system can make you feel three to four degrees cooler so you can set the thermostat a few degrees higher and feel just as comfortable for less.

#4. Keeping windows and doors shut and blinds and curtains drawn during the day will keep the sun out so your system doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your home. Remember, the harder your air conditioning system works, the more energy it consumes and that means higher electric bills.

#5. Over time, your air conditioner’s air filter collects dust and debris which restricts the flow of air. When air flow is restricted, your AC works harder to keep you cool and that means higher electric bills so don’t wait for your air filters to become clogged. Cleaning and changing them every 30 to 90 days, depending on the type of filter and your home’s environment, should keep the air flowing smoothly.

#6. The average home loses 15 to 25 percent of its cooling through leaky ducts. Visually inspect your ductwork at least once a year and have it professionally sealed or replaced if necessary.

#7. Regular maintenance will keep your air conditioning system operating at peak efficiency and it will extend its life. Having your system serviced twice a year can save you up to 17% on your cooling costs.

#8. Make sure that there is no furniture or anything else blocking the returns inside your home. Restricted air flow means your system works harder and you pay more.

It helps a lot when you mention how cleaning out your air filters can help prevent your AC from becoming strained and will help it operate more efficiently. My wife and I have been interested in getting an air conditioner installed now that we have recently bought a house that lacks sufficient insulation, but we need to find a system that is easy to maintain since we spend most of our days at work. We'll see if we can find an AC that suits our particular needs.
