It seems like temperatures are always high here in Gainesville, but after a few months with cooler temperatures, the coming months are dreaded for a reason. Now that spring is in full effect, we can only expect temperatures to rise beyond our natural comfort levels, meaning that our air conditioning units will be switched to on in the next couple of days. As we cycle through to the warmer seasons, it’s time to remember all of the ways that we can make using our air conditioning unit not only effective, but efficient.
The thermostat will always be one of the most important parts of efficiently and effectively using your air conditioning, and HVAC unit for that matter, efficiently. Most thermostats should be advanced enough to allow for scheduling temperature control throughout the day, meaning that you can regulate the temperature of your household without having to physically be at home. This saves energy and effort all because your unit will only be running in the times that people will actually be utilizing the cool air. If you make sure to set your thermostat early on in the season, you’re sure to see a steady electric bill and less mechanical issues with your unit
