The temperatures are on the rise, and with July and August fast approaching your home’s air conditioning will no doubt be working at full capacity. At Joyce Cooling & Heating we are already receiving many air conditioning maintenance calls in the Nashua area.
An air conditioner that is not working efficiently will cost the homeowner even more to cool the home. Many homeowners already cringe this time of year when they see the cost of pumping all of that cool air into their home. However, there are some simple steps that you can take to make your unit more energy efficient and save money.
One of the biggest culprits for lost energy cooling your home are the windows. Caulking any leaks or cracks and weather stripping can have a significant impact on your home’s cooling costs.
Programmable thermostat upgrade.
Realistically, your home temperature probably does not need to be the same all day long. Installing a programmable thermostat will allow you to adjust the temperature when no one is home or in a particular zone of the home.
Don’t assume just because the air conditioning is on that you don’t need to use ceiling fans. Circulating the cool air with these fans will alleviate some of the burden from your air conditioning unit.
To keep your air conditioning unit running in top form you should replace or clean your air filter every few months. A dirty filter means that your cooling system will have to work harder to circulate the air.
Having a professional conduct an annual tune-up will keep your air conditioning unit running at peak performance all summer long. A trained technician can identify and correct any problems that may lead to your system not running optimally.
By taking these simple steps to make your home’s cooling system more energy-efficient, you can be sure that you can cool your home comfortably and affordably all summer long.
