Ways to Help Your Air Conditioner this Summer

Here are a few simple ways that you can boost the efficiency of your air conditioner this summer:

Think About the Placement of Your AC

If you run a standard central air conditioner in your home it’s worth it to think about the placement of your outdoor unit. Is the outdoor unit placed somewhere where it’s baking in the sun most of the time? Your air conditioning unit should be placed near a shaded area, so it doesn’t have to work as hard to cool down when you need it to. If you have an outdoor air conditioning unit that heats up too quickly, it will cause inefficient operation.

Bonus: Think about your vents too! Are there any items blocking the airflow in your home? It’s common to move a desk, cabinet, or TV near your vents and accidentally obstruct the flow of air.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

If you don’t already have a smart thermostat in your home, then you’re not getting the most from your air conditioner. A smart thermostat is the best way to get the highest level of efficiency in your home. A smart thermostat learns how you like to heat and cool your home and even highlight opportunities for you to save on energy.

Bonus: Think about the placement of your thermostat too! Your thermostat shouldn’t be in an area that constantly changes in temperature like a foyer, entryway, or hallway. Additionally, it’s a great idea to remove heat sources (TV, lamps, etc.)  from around your thermostat so that this system can get an accurate reading.

Schedule a Tune-Up

There’s always one sure fire way to get the most from your air conditioner and that’s by scheduling a professional air conditioning tune-up. The key here is that it’s a professional tune-up. You might think that you can just run a vacuum over the output sources and clear any debris from your outdoor unit and call it a day, but this isn’t enough. You need a professional to take a deep dive into your home and really recalibrate any components that have fallen under the weather.
