Increase Your A/C Efficiency This Summer
Here are some tips you can use to optimize the usage of your air conditioning system.

Let us know which of the A/C tips below is most helpful to keep your NH home cool this summer!
1. Schedule your air conditioning efficiency tune-up.
We can’t stress the importance of annual HVAC equipment tune-ups enough. Along with reducing the risk of an unexpected A/C breakdown or repair, you can save up to 10% on your electricity bills due to the efficiency boost our technicians are trained to provide. Book your A/C tune-up today to get a tune-up appointment before the summer rush.
2. Caulk windows and insulate doors to keep cold air inside.
Just as the heat can leak out of your home during the winter, air conditioning can escape your home during the summer. Sealing any leaks with caulk is a simple and efficient way to cut back on the amount of conditioned air you let escape outdoors.
3. Install a programmable thermostat to cut cooling costs.
Limiting the operation of your ductless mini-split or central air conditioner will significantly reduce your energy bills this year. Installing a programmable thermostat to automatically cut back your air conditioner’s operation is one of the best ways to cut cooling costs. Set the thermostat to raise a few degrees while you’re out or asleep to save on energy.
4. Use fans to spread conditioned air around.
Many people underestimate the advantage that fans can deliver when used in conjunction with your air conditioner. Fans move the cooled air around your living space, allowing you to turn your air conditioner down to a lower setting without making a sacrifice in home comfort.
