How to Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

There are a few smart decisions you can make in order to get the most out of the quality and lifetime of your AC system...

  1. Make Sure Your Unit is the Right Size - You want to make sure your unit is big enough to cool your home but not too big. Bigger isn't better and if your unit is too large for your house, it is actually worse at removing humidity and can leave you feeling clammy indoors.
  2. Energy Efficiency - When purchasing a new AC unit, try to find one with an EnergyStar rating of at least 11.8 percent. The more efficient the unit, the less scary your energy bills will be.
  3. Setting the AppropriateTemperature - Blasting the AC is definitely not the best thing to do. Set the thermostat as high as you find comfortable. It cools your house efficiently and properly removes humidity.
  4. Maintenance Checks - Spring and Fall maintenance checks are essential to getting the most out of your AC and it prolongs the overall life of your system. These inspections allow for the early detection of issues as well as cleaning maintenance. When your AC system has to work twice as hard because of dirt and debris buildup, it is more prone to die out early as well as rack up your energy bill in the process.
