An Air Conditioner is designed to cool your home down by 20 degrees from the temperature outside. Therefore, set your thermostat accordingly. If the temperaure outside is 95 degrees, then set your
thermostat for 75 degrees. If you have your thermostat set for 70 degrees or lower, then your Air Conditioner will never turn off during the day. This will cause your energy bills to be at their highest
and will cause the most wear and tear on your system.
Make sure your Air Filers are clean. Clogged air filters cause the system to work harder than it has to in order to suck in the appropriate amount of air that it needs, if it will be able to accomplish this
at all. The more strain you put on your Air Conditioner the more money you are taking out of your pocket.
If your summer energy bills make you feel sick, and you are following the above two rules, then maybe you own an older model Air Conditioner. Today's systems are much more energy efficient than those made
even 5 years ago. With that said, how efficient is a system 10 years old? 15 years old?? 20 years old??? If your Air Conditioner is more than 10 years old, then the savings you will recieve on your
energy bills and maintenance repairs will pay for your new Air Conditioner in a surprisingly short amount of time.
If your tooth hurts, and you decide to hold off on seeing the dentist until the pain is unbearable, then your dentist bill may end up a lot higher than it could have been had you went right away. The same
holds true for your Air Conditioner. If a small part is malfunctioning, then it puts a strain on the entire system. The more strain the Air Conditioner is under, the quicker properly working parts wear out,
and the more expensive it is for you.
