Finding a good contractor
Here it is, the biggest factor affecting your energy efficiency: the contractor who works on your system.

Kind of scary, isn’t it? Your comfort and money are in the hands of someone else. A contractor affects many of the other factors mentioned here like your ducts and your system installation.

According to Energy Star, after a typical installation, your home won’t get 27% of the air from your air conditioner due to losses in your system!

The most important factor of all- find a good contractor to repair, maintain and install.

Knowing when to replace your air conditioner:

I’m sure you’re thinking, “Wait a second, this blog post is supposed to be lowering my energy bills, not spending money on a new system!”

And while you’re certainly right, your dying air conditioner itself may be the problem, and your high energy bills are merely a symptom of that problem.

Taking care of your air conditioner:

Not taking care of your air conditioner not only raises your energy bills, but can also lead to a costly breakdown in the middle of the sweltering summer.

Don’t let that happen to you!

Don't consider a rinsed sponge clean, even if you rinsed it with hot water. Especially if you are cleaning dishes, counters and sinks with them. After you are finished using it, toss sponges into the top rack of the dishwasher to get rid of food and bacteria. This way you know you are using clean sponges and not spreading around bacteria!! #roadrunner

Having trouble with your AC? No matter what the issue may be with your cooling system, it’s imperative that you hire an expert to take care of it so that your cooling is restored properly the first time.

Here are 4 signs to look out for
1.Inadequate cooling. One of the most common complaints that homeowners have about their air conditioners is that there is insufficient cooling (or perhaps none a...t all). This is frustrating because although your system may be “on” and therefore utilizing electricity, the results are nothing if not disappointing. There is a great variety of reasons why your system is dysfunctional, including a refrigerant leak, frozen evaporator coil or a faulty compressor.
2.Uneven cooling. It can be frustrating to have spent your hard-earned money on an air conditioner that fails to provide even cooling throughout your home. If you find that your cooling has become uneven, and there are now overly hot and cold spots throughout your home, just let one of our professional AC technicians know. This could be an issue related to duct damage.
3.Shocking energy bill. Whoa, whoa, whoa—that can’t be right. If you find yourself white-knuckled and frowning as you open up your electrical bill one otherwise breezy afternoon, we feel for you. If your energy bill is sky-high and you haven’t used that much more cool air, then there could be an issue with your air conditioner itself. You may have an airflow issue or even low refrigerant.
4.Loud and strange noises. Every air conditioner makes noise (although ductless blowers are very quiet), and you should fully expect your system to do so when it’s operating. But there are some noises that indicate a serious issue with its operation, including grinding, whistling, hissing or banging. All of these indicate a problem that requires air conditioning repair. If you notice that your air conditioner is much louder than it should be, that can also indicate an issue that requires professional investigation.
