Beating the Heat Top Tips for Optimal Air Conditioning


Keeping your home or office cool and comfortable during the hot summer months is essential for your well-being and productivity. With the help of Jack’s Air Conditioning experts, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of tips to help you get the most out of your air conditioning system.

Preventive Maintenance

  1. Schedule regular maintenance with a professional HVAC technician. This will ensure your system is running efficiently and catch any potential issues before they become major problems.
  2. Change your air filters regularly. Dirty filters restrict airflow and strain your system, leading to higher energy costs and potential breakdowns.

Efficient Operation

  1. Keep your thermostat set at a comfortable temperature, typically between 72°F and 78°F. Every degree below 72°F can increase your energy costs by up to 3%.
  2. Use ceiling fans to circulate the cool air more effectively. This allows you to raise the thermostat a few degrees without compromising comfort.
  3. Close blinds or curtains during the hottest parts of the day to block out direct sunlight, which can quickly heat up your living spaces.

Energy Savings

  • Consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient HVAC system. Newer models can save you up to 40% on your cooling costs.
  • Seal any air leaks around windows, doors, and other openings to prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from entering.
  • Invest in a programmable thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature when you’re away from home or asleep, saving energy and money.
