Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Naples

Cooling

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Naples, most folks will start truly thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration 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 watching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this season, consider these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably 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 can also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be around for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time to walk around your home and look at your windows and doors and decide 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 few tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your air conditioner and potentially save a few bucks.
