HVAC Energy Saving Tips

May 9, 2016

 

 

- A new, high efficiency 14-SEER air conditioning system uses about half the energy of a 15-year-old system. If your system is 10 years old or less, it’s best to have it checked, cleaned and tuned-up every year. If it is between 10 to 15 years old, minor repairs and service are still acceptable. If the air conditioner is 10 to 15 years old or older and needs substantial repairs, your best alternative is to replace it with a new, high efficiency system.

 

- Set your thermostat to the highest comfortable setting. Everyone’s comfort zone is different, but we recommend 76-78 degrees when you're home and 80 degrees while you are away. Adjusting your thermostat up a few degrees will have a significant impact on your cooling bill. A change from 73 degrees to 76 degrees -- 24 hours a day -- could save you approximately 30 percent on your summer cooling costs. 

 

- Clean or replace your air conditioning filter monthly, or as needed. Here’s a simple way to remember to do this task – clean or change your filter when you receive your monthly utility bill. If you desire less dust and less frequent filter cleaning or replacement, many high-efficiency filters are designed for 6-12 months of usage before replacement is necessary.  

 

- Keep your outside condenser coil on the exterior air conditioning unit free of dirt, grass clippings and leaves by rinsing the coil with a garden hose. It’s important that you do not use any high water pressure to avoid bending and/or damaging the coil fins. 

 

- Humidity is a significant load on an air conditioning system. While it’s tempting to give your system a rest on cool nights, watch the weather forecast before you decide to open the windows at night. If it's going to be hot and humid again tomorrow, keep the air conditioning on and the home closed through the night to keep the humidity out of the house. 

 

- Have your air conditioning system checked annually by a qualified and reputable air conditioning & heating contractor to make sure its working at peak efficiency. Nothing runs better than a clean machine and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
