- Clean or replace air filters once a month to ensure optimal air flow and cooling. Clean filters keep your system healthy and enable it to run more efficiently. Dirty filters mean extra repairs, service, parts and costs that you weren’t planning on.
- Caulk and weather-strip around doors, attic hatches, windows, outdoor faucets and any other openings through which air might escape. Lost conditioned air means more spring energy consumption and higher cooling costs. Keep your cool inside, and the heat outside!
- Sunshine! The sun is a natural heating source. Close your shades and drapes during the daytime to keep it out and help lower the temperature inside the home. South-facing windows get the most sunlight, east-facing windows get sunlight in the morning, and west-facing windows receive sunlight in the afternoon – plant trees and bushes strategically!
- Consider high-efficiency central and ductless mini-split air conditioning systems. Today’s AC systems use much less energy without sacrificing homeowners’ comfort.
