A bigger air conditioning unit is not necessarily better according to the United States Energy Department. “Central air-conditioning systems need to be sized by professionals,” according to Energy.gov. The website has other tips to help you maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning system.

For example:

  • Reduce cooling costs by setting your thermostat as close to the outdoor temperature as possible.
  • Setting your thermostat to an extra low temperature when you first turn it on will not increase the speed of cooling your house and may use excess energy.

Work with the professionals at Blue Mountain to be sure that your new air conditioning system is the right size for your home and to get expert help on using your system properly to maximize its efficiency and your comfort.
