Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Murrieta

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Murrieta, most people will start truly thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this time of year, consider these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most unused simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, swapping out filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it could also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than normal is a very easy way to save money. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a few degrees warmer can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be inside for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as crucial.
  • Weatherstripping: no matter if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and determine if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always looking for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner and potentially save a few bucks.
