How to Beat the Summer Heat with Your Air Conditioner

Warmer weather is right around the corner in Birmingham, which means it’s almost time to turn on your air conditioner. But just because it’s about to be the air conditioning season doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to keep your home comfortable. From improving your home’s efficiency to adding a programmable thermostat, there are a variety of ways to beat the summer heat without driving up your monthly energy costs. 

Fresh Filtration 

One of the easiest ways to keep your air conditioner operating at peak performance is by changing your home’s air filter every month during the summer. Your air conditioner’s most-worked season is almost here, which means that you’ll be relying on it quite a bit. Running your air conditioner all the time can quickly build up dirt and dust on your air filter, making it more difficult for your system to move the same amount of air. Over time that can lead to AC repair, which no one wants to deal with when the temperatures in Birmingham get their hottest. Keeping a fresh filter in your system can help you boost efficiency and keep your home more comfortable while you’re at it. 

Programmed Performance 

Programmable thermostats aren’t new, but they have changed quite a bit over the last few years, letting homeowners experience new levels of control and comfort. What often goes unrecognized is how a perfectly programmed thermostat can help increase your air conditioner’s efficiency and make a dent in your monthly energy bills. By keeping your home warmer when you are away, you can give your air conditioner a break and utilize the savings that come with not cooling an empty home. 

Keep Windows Covered 

When you leave your home, closing your blinds and shades can help keep unwanted heat out of your home. When left open, that heat can trigger your air conditioner to turn on even when you’re not around, increasing costs and unnecessarily using energy that you’re not even feeling the benefits of. Even in environments like Birmingham you can use blackout curtains to help keep even more heat out of your home. 

Realizing that the temperature is on the rise in Birmingham brings about great joy, so don’t let high energy bills change that. There are a number of easy changes you can make to improve efficiency and keep your home comfortable.
