Energy-Saving Tips for Your Air Conditioning System

Learn how to optimise your air conditioner for efficiency and save on energy bills. Simple tips for a cooler, greener home.

Schedule annual check-ups. Clean or replace filters monthly to keep your AC running smoothly and efficiently.

Set your thermostat to 78°F (25°C) when home, higher when away. Programmable thermostats can help save energy automatically.

Ensure windows and doors are sealed properly. Prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from entering.

Use ceiling or portable fans to help circulate cool air. Fans can make your space feel cooler without lowering the thermostat.

Use curtains or blinds to block direct sunlight. Solar screens or films can also reduce heat entering your home.

Plant trees or shrubs to provide shade for your AC unit. A shaded unit uses less energy to cool your home.

Consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient AC unit. Look for ENERGY STAR® rated models for better efficiency.

Approach cooling with smart home technology. Intelligent thermostats and smart systems can optimize your energy use.
