First of all take a stroll out to your outside unit and make sure that there is no debris or overgrown plants around your unit. There should be at least a two-foot space between any of the mentioned items and your unit. It is also a good idea to remove the cover (just a few screws) and wash off the coils with your garden hose, as it tends to collect grass clippings and dirt.
Take a hint and turn on your overhead ceiling fans. Indeed if you don’t have any, just use floor or table fans. To keep the cool air moving is a good idea as your thermostat will not be calling for more cool air. This is something that many people don’t think of or they haven’t known about its effectiveness. The US Department of Energy has shown that the thermostat can be set to four degrees higher with the fans running.
Thermostats that are programmable are very useful for adjusting the temperature level when you are home and when you are away. For regular time away from home such as when you go to work, the thermostat can be programmed to require less air conditioning during that time. Then at the time you arrive home, it can be timed to readjust. Some thermostats can sense when no one is home, making the task even easier.
