When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Even if you don’t think anything’s wrong, it’s still worth an inspection.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.
