Fan and Molding with PussywillowsThere are a number of misconceptions and myths regarding the use of air conditioning systems. Many of these lead to impractical use and inefficiency.

Don’t get lost in all the misleading notions – check out the following advice for smart A/C use:

  • Turning off your A/C or setting it at 78 degrees or higher when you leave the house keeps it efficient.
  • Buy a programmable thermostat that suits both your cooling and heating systems.
  • Using a ceiling fan allows you to set the thermostat at a higher temperature and still stay cool.
  • Planting shady bushes or trees on the south and west side of your house will help reduce heat gain.
  • Create a cross breeze by slightly opening a window on one side of the house and another on the opposite side.
