1 – Use a Programmable Thermostat With Your Central Air Conditioner
You can use this piece of technology to raise the temperature while you’re away from home, but make sure you don’t allow it to climb too high. When you do, your unit will just have to work harder to remove the residual heat from your home and this defeats the purpose.
2 – Insulate the Ducts
Ducts should always be insulated, and this is, even more, the case if they are located in crawlspaces or in attics. Spray foam, batting, or even rigid foam will generally do the trick and they can be sealed with foil tape. Reflectix wrap can be used in tight spaces, too.
3 – Keep the Compressor Clean
The compressor is the part of the unit that is located outside, and you’ll want to head out there once a week and after windy storms to ensure that there is no debris lodged in the fins and that there are at least 24 inches (two feet) of space cleared around all sides.
