Efficient Air Conditioning Tips

9 August 2010

I’m not going to lie – when the heat index gets over 100 degrees, my air conditioning unit is humming away in my window.  You can use your A/C to stay comfortable AND be energy efficient at the same time. Here are some tips to use during this sweltering heat to stay safe and cool and reduce your utilities costs at the same time.

For Central A/C:

Window A/C

General Tips

  • Keep blinds and drapes closed to reduce solar gain (the sun heating up your home).
  • Drink plenty of fluids and move as as little as possible.
  • If you don’t have A/C in your home, today would be a good day to take an excursion to find a place that does: Metro Transit, public libraries, movie theaters, museums, etc.  Stay safe!
