Keeping Cool Efficiency Tips

1. Keep air conditioner filters clean
Air conditioner filters should be cleaned or replaced once a month during use.

2. Maintain unobstructed airflow around vents and filters

3. Maintain 78F (26C)
For every degree you lower the temperature, the energy costs rise by 6%. A temperature of 75F (24C) setting costs 36% more.

4. Use a programmable thermostat
No need to run the air conditioner when no one is home. Set timers to have the air conditioning come on 30 minutes before anyone arrives home.

5. Keep doors closed
Enter and exit your home quickly to keep cooled air in the house.

6. Install a ceiling fan in rooms that are used often
Occupants feel as cool under a ceiling fan at 82F (28C) as in 77F (25C) still air.

7. Insulation is important
Make sure your home has the appropriate amount of insulation in walls, attics and crawl spaces.

8. Open windows at night
Take advantage of naturally cool night air when possible.

9. Plant deciduous shade trees
Shade trees absorb radiant heat before it warms your house and planting trees helps clean the air too.
