Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Vero Beach

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Vero Beach, most people will start seriously 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 pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who runs a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this time of year, ponder these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most unused simple fix to help impact 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 up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than usual is a very simple way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees warmer can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a bit? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: whether 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 figure out if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always looking for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These handful of tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner and potentially save a few bucks.
