  1. Don’t Leave Doors Open – Make sure that everyone living in your home closes the door while doing anything.
  2. Make sure entry and exist ways are sealed – If your home is not sealed properly you are losing tons of cool air. Make sure your home is sealed and air tight so that you can get the most from your unit.
  3. Upgrade older systems – If your system is 20+ years old you might want to think about upgrading, there have been some major advancements in AC units in the last 10-20 years.
  4. Close blinds during hot summer days – again plan ahead if you know it’s going to be hot leave blinds and curtains closed.
  5. Use fans whenever possible – Use floor or ceiling fans whenever possible they are a much cheaper alternative than using your AC unit but will not suffice by themselves.
  6. Try 79 degrees Fahrenheit as a good baseline (most units are optimized to run at this temperature)
  7. Timing – this means using your unit most when it won’t have the work the hardest. Example if its going to be a hot day make sure that you use your AC earlier before it gets really hot. This will allow your AC to work at optimal settings.
