Ways To Make Your Air Conditioner Run At Full Strength With Less Energy

Is it actually possible to have your air conditioner cool your home…even make it cold…without breaking the bank? For a long time, this was impossible. Air conditioner units like cassette AC systems were energy hogs.

Even a few hours of use per day could send your electric bill skyrocketing. Hence, you may know by reading this article about maintaining cassette AC systems as easily as possible.

And, sometimes, like wall units or the old style of window units, they would eat up all of that electricity and still do a poor job of cooling your home!

It is, thankfully, now possible to have a cold home and a low electric bill.

Here are 3 ways to do so:

1. Have Your Air conditioner Serviced

This goes for wall units, window units, and central air systems. Having ducts cleaned, filters changed, and worn or broken parts replaced is the best way to get the AC cranking out cold air while not costing you a fortune.

2. Buy an Energy Star Model

This is key. Most newer AC units are Energy Star certified, but be sure to look. This means that they are judged as energy-efficient and will not simply leak energy out.

This can add up to significant savings, especially if you like to keep your home very cool all summer.

3. Use Fans

A simple fan can do wonders for keeping your home cool and will help your air conditioner work much less hard.

If you have a vent that you can access or you have window or wall units, putting a fan in front of them helps push that cold air further and makes the unit work much less hard.
