Tips for Enjoying Better Cooling Efficiency

Delivering Quality Comfort to the Homes and Businesses of Hartford County and New Haven County

There is no way in which you are going to be able to cool your home free of cost, unfortunately. Running your air conditioner requires the use of energy, and that energy comes with a price tag. That being said, you can certainly make some changes that will help you to cool your home with greater energy efficiency without requiring that you replace your entire home cooling system.

Read on for some tips about how you can live comfortably without breaking the bank. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. When it comes to efficient air conditioning in West Hartford, CT, ours is the number to dial.

  • Ceiling Fans: If you have ceiling fans in your home, use them! They are not there for decoration. No, they won't cool the air as your air conditioner does, but they do help to distribute cooled air throughout your home more effectively. That can help you to feel more comfortable, allowing you to turn up the thermostat at your AC a bit.
  • Heat Blocking Curtains: Keeping the sun out of your home with the use of curtains is a great way to curtail heat gain. Using heat blocking curtains is even better. You can find heat blocking curtains manufactured by many outlets, but the thrifty homeowner can also fashion some his or herself.
  • Thermostat Upgrades: If you are not using a programmable thermostat in order to regulate the operation of your home cooling system, you are doing yourself a serious disservice. When you use a programmable thermostat, you don't have to leave your AC cranked up all day just because you want to come back to a cool environment after work.
  • Routine Maintenance: This one should come as no surprise. Hiring a trained professional to tune up your air conditioner on an annual basis is, without a doubt, the best way in which to keep your system in optimal working condition.
