Air Conditioner Tips

  |     |   Tips

As the beautiful Texas bluebonnets are fading away and the temperatures are beginning to climb, many of us will becranking up the air conditioner to fight the Texas heat! Here are a few helpful tips to get the most out of you’re Air Conditioner:

  • Be sure to set your air conditioner to 'AUTO' and not fan.
  • Raise the temperature a few degrees higher. Each degree below 78 degrees can increase your energy consumption 3-4%!
  • Invest in a box fan or use your ceiling fan. Fans can make you feel a few degrees cooler, using less energy and save you a lot of money.
  • If you use the fan, make sure it is spinning the right direction. Your fan should be spinning counter-clockwise during the hotter months because it pushes the air down instead of up (during the winter).
  • Change the filter every 30 days! Dirty filters can make your air conditioner work harder. Place a work order online or stop by at the office to say hello and pick up new air filter!
  • Air Conditioner not working after the office closes? For after-hour maintenance emergencies, call (512) 345-8653 to leave a voicemail for our on-call maintenance staff.
