Other Ways to Keep Cool
Beyond keeping your equipment in peak condition for efficient operation, other ideas of how to save on cooling costs include efficiency techniques such as:
1. Upgrade to an energy Efficient A/C unit- If your system is over 12 years old, it is time to start thinking about replacing your air conditioner. Most of the air conditioners of today are ENERGY STAR® systems, which will provide you with more powerful air conditioning without the higher energy costs. If your air conditioner is less than a 13 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) then you should seriously consider replacing it with a more energy efficient unit.
2. Annual Maintenance- It is highly recommended that homeowners have an annual maintenance tune-up for both their heating and cooling systems. A tune-up will mean your system is thoroughly cleaned and check over for any issues that could cause costly repairs in the future.
3. Fans – Whether mounted on the ceiling or moved around the rooms as needed, fans provide excellent air circulation that leads to cooler average temperatures. This is especially effective for homes with more than one floor.
