Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Muskogee

Cooling

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Muskogee, most folks will start seriously thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the foreseeable future. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this time of year, think about these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy costs.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a bit? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as crucial.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time to walk around your home and check your windows and doors and determine if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are the ideal place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and possibly save money.
