4 Tips to Improve Your Home Cooling Efficiency
Saving energy doesn’t require sacrificing comfort when you follow these cooling efficiency tips. It takes a bit of effort, but it’s effort that can pay off in energy savings. And you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you’re doing everything in your power to cool your home efficiently and help lower those summer energy bills.
1. Unblock and Vacuum Your Vents
One of the best ways to boost the efficiency of your air conditioner is to keep the vents free from debris. Take some time to walk around your house and take stock of the vents.
Take some time to remove any debris from your indoor air supply vents. This is absolutely essential if you want to maintain steady airflow through your system. Even if you dust and vacuum on a regular basis, your vents may still be blocked by blinds, rugs, toys, or furniture.
2. Close All the Doors and Windows
The conditioned air in your home may escape to the outside easily if you leave your home’s doors or windows open. This can lead to serious inefficiencies.
If you want to air out the space, then make sure that you turn your air conditioning unit off, first. Remember, it’s not your job to cool the entire neighborhood.
3. Clean Around the Condenser Unit Outside
Your outdoor unit is going to be at its most effective if it is clean and completely free and clear from any debris. However, cleaning the condenser can be tricky, so be sure you know what to do and how to do it before you get started.
Leave the more in-depth cleanings to the pros. They can ensure the proper methods are used to prevent any type of serious damage.
4. Keep All Heat-Producing Appliances Away from Your Thermostat
The location of your thermostat plays a huge role in the overall efficiency of your air conditioning unit. If your thermostat is installed in a particularly hot part of your home, like next to a sunny window, lamp, or appliance, it may not gauge your home’s temperature properly.
A certified HVAC technician knows this, which is why they will avoid putting a thermostat in an area exposed to a large amount of heat. However, if you have an older system and it is in a bad spot, it’s probably worth it to fix the issue.
