Your air conditioning system is a vital part of keeping your home comfortable, especially in Savannah, GA where summer heat and humidity can really climb. If an AC can’t perform as well as you might like, it’s tempting to consider installing a new one. However, there are other ways of improving your air conditioning system. More modest upgrades to your existing system can often improve your AC’s functionality without costing you an arm and a leg. Some prominent examples include:
- Thermostats: An older thermostat may struggle to maintain an even temperature, while offering little more than a simple on/off setting. More modern, programmable thermostats are not only easy to use, but can provide extra feature that save you effort and energy. For instance, a programmable thermostat can allow you to automatically turn the cool air on at a given time: letting you keep the system off when you’re away at work (thus saving on energy bills), then switching it on ten minutes before you arrive home to cool down the house.
- Filters and indoor air quality controls: While an air conditioning system’s primary job is to cool your house, certain upgrades can improve the quality of your air by filtering out dust and other pollutants. Air scrubbers, UV filters and the like can help purify the air: a significant consideration if you suffer from allergies or irritants.
- Zone Controls: If you live in a large home but only use a few rooms during the day, you may chafe at having to cool the entire space. Adding zone controls lets you tailor the cool air to suit different parts of the house. You can leave the air conditioning system off in unused portions of the house, or let one family member set a comfortable temperature in the bedroom while another family member sets a slightly higher temperature in the living room.
