4 Air Conditioning Solutions To Add AC To Stay Cool This Summer


The air conditioning in your home runs constantly during the warmest summer days to keep you cool and comfortable. This also means that a lot of energy is used and your utility bills will be higher. To reduce energy costs and keep your home cool, you may want to consider more energy-efficient cooling solutions. Here are some air conditioning solutions to consider for your home to reduce energy consumption and stay cool this summer:

1. Ductless AC To Add Cooling To Additions And Outdoor Enclosures

Some homes have additional spaces like finished basements, additions or outdoor enclosures. These may be spaces where you spend a lot of time and want to stay cool. Adding a separate AC to these spaces with ductless AC is a great way to add cooling to your home that is energy-efficient.

2. Geothermal HVAC Designs That Reduce Energy Needed For Cooling

Another solution to consider for cooling that uses less energy is geothermal HVAC designs. These are systems that can be used for cooling by using the ground as a heat exchanger and reducing the amount of energy needed to cool your home. Geothermal systems will work like conventional HVAC systems for heating and cooling and are an ideal energy-efficient improvement for cooling your home.

3. Natural Ventilation To Cool Your Home And Reduce Energy Used By AC

Another improvement to consider to reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home is natural ventilation. Heat convection is the natural current that is caused by heat rising, and by allowing the heat to escape your home, it can be much cooler with simple ventilation improvements. Consider higher windows, solar tower designs and attic fans to improve ventilation and cool your home through natural heat convection currents.

4. More Efficient AC With Heat Pump Air Conditioning Designs

Today, heat pump AC designs also offer and energy-efficient way to update the air conditioning in your home. The heat pump is a great solution to replace a conventional compressed gas AC unit that has reached the end of its life cycle. In addition, heat pump systems will also provide you with energy-efficient heating during mildly cool weather.

These are some air conditioning solutions that you may want to consider to stay cool this summer using less energy. If you are ready for energy-efficient AC improvements, contact an HVAC service like Washam Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning and talk to them about some of these solutions for your home.
