Five Ways To Save Money On Air Conditioning

While an air conditioner can provide much needed relief to the summertime heat and humidity, the average homeowners spends over $375 on air conditioning costs. Slash your summer energy bills — not your comfort — with these helpful tips:

1. Use a programmable thermostat. If you have central air controlled by a thermostat, save energy by turning the desired temperature up during the day when the house is empty.

2. Get an annual checkup. Schedule a yearly appointment with an HVAC professional to evaluate your heating and cooling system and diagnose any inefficiencies.

3. Choose the smallest option that works. Bigger isn’t always better. Cooling one room with a window air conditioning unit requires much less energy and money than a whole central air system for your home.

4. Efficiency matters. An Energy Star central air system will use about 14% less energy than minimum government standards, and a room air conditioner will save at least 10%.

5. Clean the air filter and air ducts. Whether you have central air or window units, a dirty filter or air ducts will reduce your AC’s efficiency, making it use more energy. Pollutants clog the heat exchanger making it work harder to heat and cool your home.
