The end of summer may be near, but that doesn’t mean that the cold weather will start right away. Ottawa weather is unpredictable, and for all we know we may still get to experience glorious warm summer weather for another month or longer. If that is the case, don’t you want your air conditioner to run as efficiently as possible?

Here are some great ways to ensure that your ac is working the best way for you and your family to provide optimal home comfort:

‘Check for leaks – Make sure that there are no cracks or worn seals on windows or doors that could be letting cold air out of your home. You can check this yourself by running your hand along edges of windows and doors to feel if cold air is escaping. Caulk and insulation can help solve this problem.

Keeping your unit protected from the sun – This can help with energy efficiency. Also, removing any debris that has accumulated in the system can help the efficiency of the unit.

Replace your unit – Last but not least, take some time to think about how old your AC unit is. While your out-of-date air conditioning unit may work, there are new, more efficient models that will save you money and energy in the long run.’ (Mediawize,
