Window Air Conditioning Unit Energy Consumption

Each room is as cool as the next. I have known people who wore a coat in their air conditioned house rather than attempting to find a setting that is cooler than the outdoor temperature level, yet not freezing cold. These people have a lot of expendable money, and do not mind their substantial energy bills. I have separate ac units in my windows, and I even have a portable ac unit to deal with my cooling requirements.

On the other hand, I need to watch my energy usage, which includes my air conditioning bill during the summer months. I wait until the temperature level inside is too high to be made tolerable with a fan. That is when my window air conditioning units pay for themselves. On the other hand, some people state that re-cooling your home every day expends more energy than always leaving it at one temperature level. In my case, my method works best for me, according to my electric bills!

The only areas I cool are the rooms in which I live. This eliminates the washrooms, laundry room, pantry, and porch areas. In the cool of the evening, I open my windows and let the cool air enter. I close the curtains and windows in the morning before the sun comes up. If I run out the house during the day, the units are turned off. When I return in the evening, the units are turned on the lowest setting it will take to make the rooms I am using comfortable. I do not cool my bed room up until an hour before bed time.

If I am home during the day, the windows and curtains remain shut. The units are turned on the lowest setting possible. I confine myself to the immediate living areas; kitchen area, living room, or den. The unit in my bed room is turned off. A cool shower during the day helps me to adjust to the temperature level. I do not want to have to cool the house due to the fact that I have worked up a sweat cleaning or working out. These few, basic pointers keep my energy expenses down, and help me to remain comfortable in the heat of summer.Web Site\nDenver Colorado Air Conditioning Service
