02 – Keep windows and curtains closed
Keep windows and curtains closed where the focuses of the sun come through, and open those where the sun does not. This makes the places where the sun lights come through not heat quickly while the sun changes another environment with open windows. So, keep the air circulating and there is no need to leave the air conditioning system on all the time. Or if you choose to leave the ducted air conditioning on with curtains closed, it will require less energy to maintain the desired temperature.
03 – Avoid using the oven
If you have to, do it in the morning or late in the evening. The heat dissipated by the oven makes your air conditioner spend more energy to maintain the environment at the desired temperature.
04 – Garments
Try to use blankets according to the time of year. There are many people who like to put heavy blankets and then use the air conditioning during the night because of the sensation of heat. It is better to use light covers and you won’t need to keep the air conditioning running.
05 – Close off vents
The basement is traditionally the coolest room in the home, so try closing all the vents in the lower portion of your home. The cool air will slink down there naturally and by closing those vents, you’re forcing all the air up top first, cooling as it comes down.
06 – Service Your Unit
Some basic maintenance might be all your air conditioner needs, but most will greatly benefit from a good hosing out, especially if you’re plagued with pesky trees like Cottonwoods that drop seeds which stick to the filters and make the unit work 15% harder!
