1. Having a Good Programmable Thermostat.
A programmable thermostat will help tremendously when it comes to the electric bill. You’re able to customize the times that your unit turns on and controlling certain temperatures at certain times; thermostats such as the NEST allow you to control your unit directly from your phone. Also, when you’re not home, you can have the a/c unit set to a higher temperature or even have it turned off while you’re gone. Having a schedule for when your air conditioner turns on or off can prevent problems because it won’t put as much stress on the air conditioner.
2. Keep An Eye on The Filters.
A good way to keep your air conditioner working properly is to check the filter every so often to make sure it isn’t filled with debris or dust from your house or business. If a filter is clogged, it can prevent the air conditioner from getting the proper the air flow that it needs to be able to send air throughout the air ducts to keep the air circulating. You may find, if you have pets in your home, you may need to replace the filter more often than usual.
3. Keeping The Area Around The Outdoor Unit Cleaned.
If applicable, the area around your outdoor unit can have an effect on the air conditioner. If there are trees hovering over the unit, leaves and/or branches can fall into the unit and cause it to get clogged. Make sure to have a clean area around the units and try not to grow any vegetation too close to the units. Make sure to clean out all spaces in and around the unit.
If there are a lot of windows in your home or business, the sun can penetrate the windows and cause lots of heat to rise. Having good window treatments could significantly help with the exposure too the sun. Investing in blinds or drapes can also help prevent the heat build up from the windows.
