8 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your AC & Lower Your Energy Bill

We know, as well as you do, that air conditioning is a lifesaver during the scorching summer season. However, rising energy costs can take a serious chunk out of your monthly budget. Here are some of Del-Air’s top tips for getting the most out of your AC, while reducing overall energy spend:

  • Change Your Filter: Think that a dirty filter doesn’t affect the effectiveness of your AC system? Think again! An aging or dirty AC filter can reduce your system’s efficiency, resulting in higher energy bills over the long term.
  • Keep Your Manual: Your AC owner’s manual offers tons of useful tips for maximizing AC efficiency. If you lost your manual or tossed it in the trash years ago, don’t worry. You can simply look up your AC model number and find a copy online.
  • Purchase a Programmable Thermostat: With a programmable thermostat, families can set their AC temperatures higher when they’re at work or school, and lower when they’re at home. By running your AC less frequently, you can extend its lifespan, while reducing energy costs for the long haul.
  • Plant a Tree: Planting a tree isn’t just good for the environment; it also helps reduce energy bills by providing natural shade. As a result, homeowners can run their ACs less frequently.
  • Use Your Grill: Want to cut the temperature in your kitchen? Try cooking outside a few times a week. Because grilling keeps the heat outside, you won’t have to expend as much energy cooling your home.
  • Turn Off Unused Appliances: The average homeowner spends $1000 a year on heating and cooling costs. To cut down on your energy bill, take a moment to unplug appliances before you leave a room. Microwaves, coffeemakers, and laptops may seem small, but they all draw power and increase heat.
  • Improve Insulation: Adding a little extra insulation to your home’s walls and ceilings can have a significant effect on your energy bills.
  • Buy a Fan: While your first instinct may be to go for the AC controls, turning on a fan can go a long way towards cutting your energy costs. Additionally, homeowners can open their windows at night to let in the breeze.

In that appointment, Raymond showed us areas in our air units that needed addressing. He took his time and made sure he made a thorough inspection of all the equipment. And what a nice gentleman.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
