No Cost Ways to Improve Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Are you searching for ways to improve your air conditioners efficiency? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

In this article, we will provide you with several tips you can use to make your air conditioner more efficient.

Tip #1 – Clean Around Your Outdoor Condenser Unit

The first thing you can do to improve your air conditioners efficiency is to clean your outdoor condenser unit.

If you’re wondering what you should clean, you should remove grass, leaves, shrubs, or other debris that may be growing near the compressor and you should also clean/clear any debris that may be on the condenser itself.

Tip #2 – Vacuum Floor Vents

Over time it’s possible that your floor vents may become clogged and this will affect the performance of your air conditioner. To eliminate this problem, you should vacuum those floor vents to remove dust, dirt, and other debris that may be blocking them.

Tip #3 – Increase Your Thermostat By Five Degrees, or Higher

The next thing you should do to improve your air conditioner's performance is to increase your thermostat by at least 5 degrees or higher. Doing this will ensure that your air conditioner comes on less during the day and you will also see a noticeable difference in your energy bill as well.

Tip #4 – Keep Heat Producing Items Away from Your Thermostat

Do you have an older television, lamps, or other heat-producing items that are near your thermostat? If so, you should place those items in different parts of your house because any heat that’s produced near your thermostat will make it think the house is hotter than it actually is and you will find your air conditioner coming on more during the day.

Besides keeping heat-producing items away from your home’s thermostat you should also keep your curtains or blinds closed during the day, use fans in your home (when possible), and change your air conditioner's air filter at least once a year.
