Check Your Thermostat
Cool your home at 78º or warmer with the fan switch on “auto.” For extra savings, raise the thermostat to 82º when you’re not home.
Keep interior doors and vents open to help circulate the air.
Keep Your Unit Clean & Clear
Be sure to clean or change your air filter at least once a month, and always use the proper size for your unit. It is also important to keep your outside unit clear of debris to avoid blocking the airflow.
Upgrade Your Insulation
If your home was built before 1985, you may need to upgrade your insulation to reduce cooling costs and make your home more comfortable.
Consider Buying a New A/C Unit
If your system is over 10 years old, it may be time to purchase a new unit. For maximum energy savings, ask your independent American Standard dealer about the Heritage® 20 or Allegiance® 20.
Keep Sunlight Out
Close your blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest time of day.
