Vacuum indoor vents and keep vents unblocked.
You can vacuum dust and any debris away from indoor supply vents to help maintain steady airflow from your system. Also, keep items like blinds, furniture, and toys away from blocking the vents.
Increase your thermostat by a few degrees.
Typically, adjusting temperatures 5 – 8 degrees (down in winter, up in summer) can help save money and energy.
With a programmable thermostat, you can automatically adjust the temperature for different times of the day or during times you are going to be away from home for several hours.
Keep lamps and other heat-producing appliances away from your thermostat.
Having heat producing appliances near your thermostat will tell it that the air in your home needs to be cooled more, causing the system to run longer and work harder than it may need to. Keep curtains and blinds closed in the heat of the day. When the direct sun hits the windows in your home, keeping your curtains or blinds closed can keep some of the heat from warming the inside of your home.
