At Alan Energy Services, we understand the importance of keeping your home or office comfortable during the sweltering summer months. Here are some tips and tricks to help you maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning system:

Regular Maintenance

  1. Schedule annual tune-ups for your AC unit. This will ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently, saving you money on energy bills.
  2. Change or clean your air filters regularly. Clogged filters make your system work harder, wasting energy and money.

Smart Thermostat Settings

  • Set your thermostat to 78°F when you’re at home and 85°F when you’re away. Every degree below 78°F can increase your energy costs by up to 8%.
  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat to automatically adjust temperatures based on your schedule.

Improve Insulation and Airflow

  • Seal any air leaks around windows, doors, and ductwork to prevent cooled air from escaping.
  • Ensure vents and returns are not blocked by furniture or other obstacles, allowing for proper airflow.

By following these tips, you can enjoy a comfortable living or working environment while reducing your energy consumption and saving money on your utility bills.
