Don't Overuse the Air Conditioner


Have your air conditioning system serviced annually. Clean the filters on individual window units. Don't program your air conditioning any lower than 76 degrees. Close the doors to any unused rooms and turn the air conditioning off when nobody is home. If there is a ceiling fan in the room, turn it on to help circulate the air. Turn the air conditioning off and open the windows at night to let cool air in.
