• Programmable Thermostats:  Use one to set back the temperature when you don't really need it, such as when sleeping or gone for the day.
  • Maintenance:  Change filters frequently and clean indoor and outdoor coils.  Most dealers offer a regular maintenance service that can keep your system operating correctly.
  • Furnace/air handler blower:  If you have a furnace or air handler with a variable speed blower, set the Thermostat Fan in the "ON" position always.  It will circulate air better and use less energy than if on AUTO.
  • Match indoor & outdoor coils:  If you install a new central air conditioning outdoor unit, include a new, equally efficient "matched" indoor unit.
  • Insulation:  Be sure your home is adequately insulated.
  • Check and re-check:  In the spring and fall, check the seals around windows and doors and then seal them with a quality caulk.
  • Ductwork:  Make sure ductwork is properly installed for greater efficiency.  Also check for leaks, mold, dirt and foreign matter in the duct system.
  • Service & maintenance agreement:  If you do not already own this agreement, then consider purchasing one so that your system is properly checked and serviced prior to the cooling season.
  • Prevent air loss:  Install weather stripping around drafty areas on windows and doors.
  • Keep your thermostat up:  Each extra degree can add four to five percent to your cooling bill depending on the age of the air conditioner.
