- Give Your AC Space
Plants and other flora such as bushes and trees should be kept at least three feet away from your air conditioning system. When plants, trees, and shrubs line your AC, they can reduce the airflow that emits from the equipment thus leading to inadequate air conditioning and ventilation.
- Wash The System
When your air conditioning system goes unwashed, the equipment will accumulate pollen and other debris. The outside of the system should be cleaned regularly to prevent it from overheating.
- Change The Batteries
Annually, you should change your thermostat’s batteries to ensure its working correctly.
- Change The Filters
Air filters on your air conditioning system should be changed about every 90 days to get get rid of dirt and dust. When you change the filter, this allows the system to filter properly, increasing the ventilation capability and the overall life of the equipment.
- Set Temperatures
To reduce energy use, set your AC temperatures for day and night. You can do this by programming for specific times of the day. For instance, if no one is at home for a large portion of the day, you can program the system so that there is less usage.
- Block The Sun
Keep the sun out of during the brightest and hottest hours of the day. When you do this, you will reduce the amount of heat that comes into your home, thus allowing your air conditioning equipment to reserve energy that would be needed to cool the home.
