Programmable thermostats can help the average homeowner save on heating and cooling costs by as much as 10 percent, but during the summertime it’s tempting to simply forgo the actual “programming” part and keep your home cool constantly. This obviously defeats the purpose of installing an energy-efficient thermostat, so be sure to get the most out of your investment with these summer cooling tips for programmable thermostats:
Choosing a Thermostat
Different households run on different schedules, so shop around for one that best suits your needs. Programmable thermostats are generally available in three configurations: 7-day, 5+2-day, and 5-1-1. As the names suggest, 7-day models offer customization options for every day of the week, while the latter two offer different settings for the weekends.

Ideally, a programmable thermostat should be installed away from places where the temperature is inconstant, such as near heating/cooling vents, heat-generating appliances, open doorways/windows, and direct sunlight. A certified HVAC professional can install it without compromising the electrical safety of the rest of your home.
style="font-size: 11px; line-height: 13px;">Using It Effectively
You can’t expect significant energy savings unless you use programmable thermostat properly. Most thermostats come with four pre-programmed settings and an override feature to make your life a little simpler, and taking the time to tailor the settings to your needs will pay dividends in the long run. Remember, every time you override your own settings, you’re only taking money out of your pocket. On average, you can save two percent on your energy bill for every degree you turn up the thermostat in the summer.

Your air conditioner is constantly working to keep your home cool, especially during the balmy Southern California summers. To prevent premature mechanical wear, take a look at this video clip which covers some common misconceptions about central air conditioners.
Contrary to popular belief, turning down the thermostat doesn’t cause the A/C unit to work faster; it’ll only run at a constant rate until your home reaches the desired temperature. By simply replacing the air filters every one to three months and scheduling a biannual tune-up before peak use during summer and winter, you can prevent some of the most common causes of HVAC problems.

Your air conditioner is one of the most important appliances in your home, which is why it’s crucial to shop smart for a new unit when yours finally reaches the end of its lifespan. Take a look at this brief air conditioner buyer’s guide to brush up on what to look for in a new unit:
Size is one of the most important factors in buying a new air conditioner. Too small, and the unit will fail to cool your home adequately and break often; too large, and you’ll end up overpaying for a unit that uses more energy and fails to remove the humidity from the room. Be aware that not all air conditioners with the same efficiency rating (SEER) will perform identically, and that neglecting to find an appropriately sized unit will only impede its efficiency. While there are general guidelines for sizing an air conditioner, it is recommended to have an HVAC professional perform the calculations to find a suitable unit that will provide you with the best long-term savings.
style="font-size: 11px; line-height: 13px;">Efficiency
The average American household spends as much as half of its annual energy bill on heating and cooling alone, especially if you happen to live in Southern California during the summertime. An Energy Star air conditioner can help you save as much as 30 percent on annual heating and cooling costs compared to a unit that is just 12 years old.
style="font-size: 11px; line-height: 13px;">Long-Term Maintenance
A new air conditioner will obviously function well initially, but you’ll get the best savings by thinking about long-term maintenance as soon as possible. Several newer HVAC units actually require regular professional maintenance to maintain manufacturer warranty coverage. Be sure to keep up on air filter replacements every one to three months, and schedule a biannual tune-up from an HVAC professional to keep interior components functioning optimally.
