Tips
  • Remove, clean, and store window air conditioners. If not, wrap the unit with a thick layer of fiberglass insulation and seal it with plastic sheeting and duct tape to keep out the moisture.
  • If your air conditioner is old, consider a new one. Look for a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The current minimum is 13 SEER for central air conditioners.
  • Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units but not to block the airflow.
  • Don’t place lamps or TV sets near your air-conditioning thermostat.
  • Consider using an interior fan in conjunction with your window air conditioner to spread the cooled air more effectively through your home.
  • Set your thermostat as high as possible. 78°F is often recommended.
  • Keep your cooling system well tuned.
  • Whole-house fans help cool your home by pulling cool air through the house and exhausting warm air through the attic.
