3 Upgrades that Make an Air Conditioner More Efficient

Saving money can be difficult in the summertime, when your air conditioning system is running for most of the day. And your air conditioning system might have lost some efficiency over the years. But if it’s not quite ready for an upgrade, there are still some efficiency upgrades you can make, and they can last in your home for many years to come.

A Dehumidifier

Adding a dehumidifier into your home helps you by allowing you to run your air conditioner less often. You’ve probably heard it before—“It’s not the heat. It’s the humidity!” Humidity can make you feel as if the air around you is warmer because all that excess moisture makes your body incapable of cooling down naturally very quickly. You end up turning down the temperature more than you need. A dehumidifier helps you save, using less energy and allowing you to use the AC less frequently.

Zone Control

A zone control system is something that goes within the ductwork, installed as a series of dampers that opens and shuts as needed for more or less airflow. This can help you save money in a lot of ways:

  • Turn off the air in an area of the home that you’re not occupying.
  • Balance airflow throughout the home without using excessive energy to do so.
  • Cool hard-to-reach areas, like rooms with large windows and expansive layouts, without using energy to cool the rest of the home too

Home Automation

Finally, a home automation system is helpful to you because it allows you to make changes to your AC system from your smart phone. Your smart thermostat connects to your Wi-Fi, allowing you to make adjustments when you’re going to be late due to an unexpected work event (or happy hour) or if you get to come home early.
