Consider a High-Efficiency Upgrade
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old or doesn’t work as well as you’d like, consider upgrading to a newer model. Technology is improving and newer systems can boost your efficiency significantly.
Don’t Pay for Phantom Energy
Phantom energy is a secretive culprit of wasting energy. To avoid it, unplug your electronics that are turned off—they can draw a surprising amount of power while they’re in standby mode. An alternative is to plug them into a power bar and turn the bar off until you’re ready to use them.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
Programming your thermostat is the simplest way to adjust your temperatures on a regular basis. Aim to give your air conditioner a break for about 8 hours a day (during the day or overnight) and you could save up to 10% on your home cooling bills over the spring and summer.
Sleep Easy with Fans
Setting your thermostat to raise the temperatures overnight is easy if you can adjust to sleeping in a warmer climate. Use fans and a light sheet to stay cool when it’s time to hit the hay.
