Efficient Air Conditioning Solutions for the Season

May 31, 2024

How can you stay cool without causing strain on your HVAC system? Discover energy-efficient AC solutions from the experts at Grogan Mechanical in this helpful guide.

Protect Your Air Conditioner

Spring and summer can bring scorching hot days that have you begging for relief. Your air conditioner can keep you cool but unless you maintain it and implement energy-saving solutions, you risk putting excess strain on the system. This may cause your energy bills to skyrocket and your unit to experience mechanical problems.

Are you looking to keep your home cool without overworking your air conditioner? The following tips will help you maintain an energy-efficient home.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

You might not think to make a service call to a technician unless something is wrong with your cooling system. However, scheduling annual maintenance comes with many benefits, including:

  • Extending the life of your system
  • Checking for minor damage and repairing it right away
  • Increasing your indoor air quality
  • Making your unit more efficient

Spring is the ideal time for a tune-up because it allows technicians to provide AC solutions before you use your system consistently.

Check Your Ductwork

Having your HVAC system sit idle for months could lead to a build-up of debris inside your air ducts. Before the peak cooling system sets in, schedule an inspection of your ductwork. Experts can clean the ducts so they don’t distribute any pollutants and repair any cracks in them.

Use Ceiling Fans

The air conditioner produces cool air, but ceiling fans help circulate it throughout a space so it remains cool. Research shows that ceiling fans can make a room feel several degrees cooler, so it’s worth turning them on in your home. Make sure you only operate fans when you’re in the room for optimum benefits.

Ditch the Air Conditioner at Night

It’s easy to turn your air conditioner on during the day when the temperature reaches a high and sunlight fills your home. Once the sun goes down, you should either lower the temperature on your thermostat or turn the cooling system off. The outdoor air will cool down and keep your home naturally comfortable at night.

Take Advantage of Your Windows

Your home will feel much warmer if you keep the windows closed to trap heat. Open them during the day to promote cross-ventilation and enjoy soft breezes. If you decide to operate your air conditioner instead, close the window blinds or curtains to block sunlight and reduce strain on your cooling system.
