One of the most important things that you can do in the summer when you are likely going to be using your air conditioner a lot is to find ways to get the most out of your air conditioner without wasting a lot of energy and running your utility bills up. Listed below are two ways to save energy and money when using your air conditioner.
Force The Air Into The Right Rooms
One of the first things that you should do when trying to conserve energy when using your air conditioner is to make sure that the air flowing out of your air conditioner is going into the right rooms. For example, going throughout the house and closing those vents in the rooms that are not currently in use is going to be a great way to direct the flow of air into the right rooms.
As a result, those rooms and the people in them will get comfortable and cool much more quickly due to the fact that they are getting increased airflow since no cool air is being diverted to those rooms that now have closed vents. This means that you will be able to shut off your air conditioner much sooner, which conserves energy and lowers your utility bills.
Make Sure That Your Vents Are Unobstructed
Another effective way of saving money and energy when using your air conditioner is to go throughout your house and make sure that all of your vents are unobstructed. For example, make sure that you don't have any furniture or rugs covering up any of the vents in your house, mostly because the air coming out of those vents is essentially going to be wasted as it will be absorbed by the furniture or rugs.
If you cannot find another place to move a piece of furniture that is blocking a vent, there are attachments you can buy for your vents that will direct the air at an angle that will allow it to get around the piece of furniture. An example of this would be a plastic attachment that fits over the vent that directs the air upward so that it is not striking the back of a couch and cooling the couch instead of the room.
Contact an air conditioner service or HVAC contractor today in order to discuss what you can do to save energy and money when using your air conditioner. Forcing air into the right rooms and making sure that your vents are unobstructed are two very effective ways of saving both energy and money when you have to use your air conditioner throughout the summer.Share
