Summer Air Conditioning Tips – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Hot summer weather is here with high temperatures and high humidity. Here are some ways to stay cool and save energy at the same time. Central Plumbing and Heating can help you save money on your summer utility bills by following these energy saving tips to reduce use this summer.

  • Install a clean the air conditioning filter on a regular basis in the summer and replace or clean it monthly. Dirty filters cause the equipment to work harder and use up to five percent more energy.
  • Set the air conditioner thermostat at 78 degrees. Each degree below 78 adds about eight percent to your cooling costs.
  • Use fans, both portable and ceiling, whenever possible to help circulate air and reduce the amount of air conditioning you need. Because they are smaller wattage, they only cost a dollar or two a month to operate.
  • Set your thermostat at a higher temperature while you’re away from home. This way the air conditioner won’t be on as often while you’re out.
  • Wash dishes, use the oven, and do laundry during cooler temperatures. These create heat and moisture that put an extra strain on the air conditioner. Vent clothes dryers to the outside and use kitchen exhaust fans to get rid of excess heat.
  • Keep direct sunlight out as much as possible. Close curtains, shades and blinds to hold down the temperature inside. Consider light-colored roofs, outside walls, drapes and solar screens that reflect the heat.
  • Weatherstrip doors and windows to prevent expensive air leaks. Make sure all windows and doors are closed when the AC is on.
  • The attic should be properly ventilated to prevent excess heat build-up, which causes your cooling system to work harder.
  • Insulation is important and can pay for itself by lowering your cooling costs by as much as 20 percent.
  • Air conditioning equipment should be inspected and serviced annually by a licensed HVAC contractor so it runs at maximum efficiency.
  • Be sure the damper is tightly closed on a fireplace to prevent air loss.
  • Keep furniture and draperies away from air vents inside the house. Air should be allowed to flow freely.
