Having an incorrect size air conditioner for your home can make a big difference in how much money you will spend trying to keep your home cool. An air conditioner will remove not only sensible heat , but also removes latent heat. If your cooling unit is too big for your home, the unit will not be able to run long enough to remove the humidity. Also if the unit is not big enough, reaching your desired temperature will be next to impossible. You will then notice your air conditioner will not shut off. Both of these issues can cause your air conditioner to run less efficiently.
With the information generated from an Energy Audit by Green Improvement Consulting, we can help you figure out if your air conditioner is running at it’s highest efficiency. Our Energy Audit will also determine if your home needs further weatherization to help make it as efficient as possible. There are rebates available through MGE and KCP&L to help pay for the Energy Audit and possibly cover some of the cost of energy efficiency work that may be need to be completed. More information on these rebates can be found through KC Cool Homes or hpwes.net.
Installing a programmable thermostat in your home will help keep utility bills low. These type of thermostats allow a homeowner to program each day to a specific temperature when you are home or away. By lowering the temperature when you are away from home, you can start saving money each month.
