Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Tampa Bay

Cooling

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Tampa Bay, most homeowners will start truly thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your wallet.

Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this season, consider these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees warmer than typical is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees warmer can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a bit? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: no matter if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and figure out if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These couple tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner and probably save a few bucks.
