Saving Energy in the Fall and Winter

October 18, 2012 |

Now that it’s cooling down, you’re going to be making a few adjustments regarding your air conditioning system or unit, and we’re not just talking about adjusting your thermostats. If you read our previous blog post about saving energy (and cash!) during the summer, here’s our winter version.

If you’re seeking to keep your air conditioning and heating system efficient in the fall and winter, here are several ways to accomplish the task. First – have a comfort specialist come and inspect your air conditioning system’s duct and cooling equipment. The next steps are learning the proper winter settings for your air conditioning thermostat: 68 degrees when you’re at home and awake and as low as 60 degrees when you’re asleep. Additionally, ensure that you clean and replace furnace on your air conditioning system filters every month. There are many other efforts you can make to directly affect the temperature your air conditioning system maintains. Some ways to positively impact your home are to routinely clean your chimney, seal any leaks in your attic and especially around windows and doors, use heavy insulation, and clean windows on the south side of your house to maximize sunlight exposure. Repairing leaking faucets and insulating water lines to prevent them from freezing are additional good measures to take.

By following these simple and easy steps, you will maximize your air conditioning and heating systems this fall and winter, allowing your air conditioning system to reach it’s full potential, more easily.
