10 Ways to Achieve Energy-Efficient Home Cooling

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

Is your home using more energy than it should just to keep things cool this summer? If so, this might be reflected on your energy bills over the past few months. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to lower your HVAC system’s consumption and achieve greater savings in the process. As your local air conditioning service provider, we recommend the following tips for energy-efficient home cooling.

Use fans

Turning the fans on can help your air conditioning system distribute cool air around your living space. Just make sure to turn them off when not in use.

Invest in a programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat is a great way to control your home’s cooling more efficiently, especially at the times when you’re going out or sleeping.

Change your air filter

Make changing your air filter a monthly habit to ensure proper airflow and prevent your HVAC system from failing prematurely.

Seal the ducts

Leaky ductwork contributes to inefficient cooling in many homes. Make sure your ducts are inspected and sealed properly by a professional HVAC technician.

Never delay repairs

If something is wrong with your cooling system, hire a pro to inspect it right away. Delaying taking care of HVAC problems will only make them worse.

Invest in routine maintenance

Annual and semi-annual HVAC maintenance work boosts the efficiency and longevity of your cooling equipment while preventing costly repairs and sudden breakdowns.

Replace old windows

Windows that have reached the end of their lifespan must be replaced with energy-efficient units. This way, your cooling system won’t have to work twice as hard to ensure indoor comfort.

Utilize your window treatments

Stop the sun’s heat from flowing through your windows by closing your curtains, drapes or blinds.

Open your windows

Schedule a time of day to turn off your AC and air out your home. Along with catching cool breezes, doing so will also aid in in removing stale indoor air.

Replace your old AC unit

Older AC units are less efficient, so before yours breaks down and compromises your indoor comfort, consider investing in a new one right away. Make sure you choose ENERGY STAR®-compliant equipment.
