Maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning during the summer heat.

Here are some tips to help you stay cool and maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning during the summer:

  1. Set the temperature wisely: Set your thermostat to the highest comfortable temperature. Every degree you raise the temperature can save you energy and money. Aim for a temperature around 78°F (25°C) when you’re at home.
  2. Use a programmable thermostat: There a number of features to take advantage of when you have a programmable thermostat. Program it to increase the temperature when you’re away from home and lower it shortly before you return, so you can enjoy a cool environment without wasting energy.
  3. Close your home windows and blinds: During the hottest parts of the day, close your windows and use blinds or curtains to block out the sunlight. This will prevent heat from entering your home and help keep it cooler.
  4. Use fans strategically: Ceiling fans or portable fans help circulate the cool air from your air conditioner. They create a wind-chill effect, making you feel cooler even at higher temperatures. Remember to turn them off when you leave the room to save energy.
  5. Maintain your air conditioner: Regular maintenance can improve your AC’s efficiency. Clean or replace air filters to ensure proper airflow. Also, it is important to have an AC Professional tune-up your system to identify any issues and optimize its performance one to two times each year. Book your AC check-up with Rocket Cooling today or sign up for our annual AC maintenance plan. 
  6. Limit heat-generating appliances: Appliances like ovens, stoves, and dryers produce heat, which can make your AC work harder. Try to use them during cooler parts of the day or consider alternatives like grilling outdoors or air-drying your clothes.
  7. Use natural ventilation: Take advantage of cooler evenings by opening windows and using natural ventilation to cool your home. This can help reduce the need for air conditioning and provide fresh air.
  8. Insulate your home: Proper insulation can keep cool air inside and hot air outside. Make sure your home is well-insulated, including windows, doors, and any other areas where air could escape.
  9. Consider using a dehumidifier: High humidity can make you feel uncomfortable even at lower temperatures. A dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air, making the environment more comfortable and reducing the need for excessive cooling.
  10. Use energy-efficient appliances: If it’s time to replace your air conditioner or other appliances, choose energy-efficient models with a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. This simple choice will save you money on your power bills in the long run.

Remember, these tips can help you stay comfortable while using your air conditioner more efficiently. Implementing some or all of these AC tips this summer can help reduce energy consumption and save money on your cooling costs during the hotter months.
