Your air conditioning is an important aspect of your comfort in the hot summer months. For this reason, it is especially important to take care of your unit and ensure that you are maximizing the efficiency of your air conditioner. While tending to your unit may sound exhausting, a few simple practices can not only keep your unit running efficiently, but also save you money over the summer. If you’re looking to make the most of your air conditioning in the upcoming months, consider these three easy ways to make the most of your AC this summer.
Keep Your Unit at a Consistent Temperature
By keeping your unit at a consistent temperature throughout the summer, you are both saving money on your energy bill and maximizing the efficiency of your air conditioner. Maintaining your indoor temperature consistently above 75 degrees Fahrenheit, typically between 76 and 78 degrees, is optimal for comfort, efficiency, and saving money.
Switch Off Your Air Conditioner Occasionally
As you are leaving your house for the day, it is a good idea to turn your air conditioning off to ensure that it is not running all day for an empty house when you are not there. Another efficient practice is to turn your air conditioning off on especially cool nights, and use a fan or open the windows to cool your home instead.
Close Your Shades During the Day
During the hottest hours of the day, consider closing your curtains and shades to keep each room in your house cool and comfortable throughout the afternoon. It is best to do this in the morning as the day is heating up to ensure that the brightest sunlight is not slowly heating up your home. This can also improve the efficiency of your unit, as it will not need to work as hard to cool your home down throughout the summer.
