One nice incentive people have for making smart decisions with Utah air conditioning systems is saving money. In Utah, air conditioning is a priority. Here are a few suggestions on ways to save money with Utah air conditioning.
1.) Turn off the air when you leave your home. Don’t leave the AC running all day while you are gone. Yes, it will be hot when you get home. Yes, it is nice to come home from your hot car drive to a cool home. But the reality is that it doesn’t take that long for the AC to cool down your home.
Running the AC while you aren’t there to enjoy it is a gross waste of energy. Save money by only running the air while you are home. While your AC is starting enjoy a nice, cold drink of lemonade to cool off and save yourself some money.
2.) If you aren’t using all your home’s rooms, don’t pay to cool them off. Close the registers to those rooms that are un-used. Ask your Utah air conditioning company which registers to close because closing too many registers can cause problems with your AC system.
3.) Make sure that your HVAC system has a programmable thermostat with a built-in timer. Thermostats enable you to know exactly how hot it is in your home. Having a programmable one enables you to determine how hot the home needs to be before the air conditioning goes on, and the built-in timer allows you to set times when the air conditioning should go on and for how long.
4.) Have the right size air conditioning unit. Professional Utah air conditioning companies are available to help you determine the right size unit for your home. If you have too small of an AC unit it will waste energy trying to cool down the huge amount of space. Too big AC units will waste energy because you don’t need that much energy to cool down the home.
5.) Replace the AC filter monthly. Dirty filters will make your AC unit less efficient, which makes them have to work harder to get their job done, which means wasting energy. Clean or replace your filters when they are dirty.
6.) Replace units that are older than 15 years old. Research has shown that today’s units use 30-50% less energy than models that were created 15 years ago. If you have an AC unit that is that old look in to replacing it.
