Energy Conservation Tips:
Set your air conditioner thermostat
to 78°F or higher – health permitting – when you are at home.
Set it at 85°F (or turn it
off), when you’re away from home.
Consider installing a programmable
thermostat to regulate usage.
Clean or replace filters regularly,
according to manufacturer recommendations.
Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for air conditioner maintenance and operation, such as
keeping vents clear of obstructions.
Repair leaky air ducts.
Use a fan instead of your
air conditioner to circulate air.
Open windows for cool air
during the evening and early morning.
Close blinds or other window
covers to block direct sunlight.
