Keeping Cool The Smart Way


Temperature Control, Inc. is dedicated to providing top-notch air conditioning services, ensuring your home or office stays comfortable and energy-efficient all year round. In this article, we’ll explore some tips and tricks to help you stay cool while minimizing your carbon footprint and saving money on energy bills.

Proper Maintenance

  • Regular air filter replacements: Clogged air filters restrict airflow, making your AC work harder and reducing its efficiency. Replace filters every 1-3 months.
  • Professional tune-ups: Schedule annual maintenance checks to ensure your system is operating at peak performance.
  • Clean condenser coils: Debris on condenser coils can impair heat transfer, leading to higher energy consumption.

Smart Thermostat

Investing in a programmable or smart thermostat can significantly reduce energy consumption and costs. These devices allow you to set temperature schedules based on your daily routine, automatically adjusting the temperature when you’re away or asleep. Many smart thermostats also provide insights into your energy usage and offer energy-saving recommendations.

Insulation and Sealing

Proper insulation and sealing can help maintain cool indoor temperatures while reducing the workload on your AC unit.

  • Attic insulation: Ensuring your attic is well-insulated can prevent heat from seeping into your living spaces.
  • Seal air leaks: Caulk and weatherstrip around windows, doors, and other openings to prevent cool air from escaping.
  • Window coverings: Use blinds, shades, or curtains to block direct sunlight and keep your home cooler.

Energy-Efficient Practices

Adopting energy-efficient practices can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and save you money in the long run.

  • Set the thermostat at a reasonable temperature: Aim for around 78°F (25.5°C) when home and 85°F (29.4°C) when away.
  • Use fans: Ceiling or portable fans can make a room feel cooler, allowing you to raise the thermostat a few degrees.
  • Upgrade to an Energy Star certified AC unit: These units meet strict energy efficiency guidelines, saving you money on utility bills.
