Check out Fabulous & Frugal’s top 13 air conditioning saving tips that are sure to reduce your energy use and costs while raising your efficiency to the max!
1. Clean Your Filters Regularly
Whether you have central air or window units, replacing or washing the filters with water and vinegar once a month will not only help remove dirt and allergens, but it will increase the efficiency and lifespan of your air conditioner. A clean filter allows the unit to function at its peak, using less energy to cool off your space. Less energy used means less money spent!
2. Seal Doors and Windows and Insulate Your Attic
Properly insulating your attic and sealing any leaks under doors or around windows will greatly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of both your cooling and heating systems. The less hot air seeps in and cooled air seeps out, the less work your unit has to do to keep the temperature regulated.
