Your Personal Guide to Cooling Season Savings.
Select energy-efficient products when you buy new heating and cooling equipment.
The higher the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, the greater the energy savings. Correct Temp can help you calculate expected energy savings by SEER rating as part of your selection process.
Clean and replace filters regularly. Dirty and dusty filters are the reason for half of all repair requests we receive. A dirty, clogged filter will reduce airflow and put added strain on your system.
Installing the right size equipment is essential to getting the best performance and most comfort for your money
Set your thermostat as high as is comfortable in the summer and as low as is comfortable in the winter. Consider installing a programmable thermostat.
Only use ceiling fans with your AC system when you’re present. Otherwise, you’ll just be wasting energy.
Use caulk or an expanding foam around windows and door to fill up the gaps. That keeps the cold air in and reduces your energy consumption.
Close drapes and blinds during the day, especially those that receive direct sun.
Keep your kitchen cool and you’ll keep your electricity bill down. That means cooking less when outside temperatures are the hottest.
If you have a whole-house ceiling fan, turn it on at night (and turn your AC system off), but only when the outdoor temperature at matches the temperature indoors. Open up your windows at the same time for a great night’s sleep.
Try using your dryer less often, too. Plus, by hanging some or all of your clothes outside, they’ll smell cleaner and fresher.
