FAQs About Air Conditioning
Air conditioning is a necessity rather than a luxury when it comes to Florida’s humid weather. Despite this reality, many people don’t know very much about air conditioning. We have answered some frequently asked questions below, so you can learn more.
How can I lower my energy costs?
Air conditioning accounts for much of your energy costs, but it doesn’t have to strain your wallet. One way to make your air conditioning unit more energy efficient is by changing the filters more frequently. Other things you can try that don’t involve your AC unit itself include using ceiling fans to circulate cool air, installing improved insulation, and upgrading your windows.
Should my thermostat be set to “auto” or on”?
It depends. If you want to save on energy costs, setting your thermostat to “auto” is the better choice. It will only run when it needs to in order to maintain your set temperature. If you set your thermostat to “on,” it will run constantly. This is more expensive, but it is useful for people who have asthma or allergies and need the air to be filtered better.
Should I run my AC when I’m away on vacation?
The short answer is yes. Even if your home doesn’t need to be a comfortable temperature when no one is home, you should keep your AC running to circulate the air and manage humidity. However, when you’re not home for an extended period, there’s no need to run your air conditioner at its normal temperature. You can set it to around 85 degrees. This will keep the costs down.
