Use a Zone Control System
Investing in a zone control system is going to cost some money upfront, of course, but it is much less than replacing your system would cost. With a zone control system, you can maintain different temperatures in different areas throughout your home. In doing so, you ensure that everyone is able to live comfortably, without draining your budget in the process. Different “zones” in the house are all controlled independently of one another with the use of individual thermostats, and these thermostats regulate the operation of electronic dampers in the ductwork. Those dampers will allow more or less conditioned air into different zones as needed.
Have Your Ductwork Serviced
A very common cause of inefficient cooling with a ducted HVAC system is damaged or compromised ductwork. If you suspect that this is the case in your home, then you are wise to have your air ducts professionally tested and, if necessary, sealed or repaired. After all, you are going to have a much easier time of efficiently cooling your home if the cooled air from your system is actually able to make its way to its intended endpoint.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
We are certain that you’ve heard this before, but it does bear repeating. The best thing that you can do for your home cooling system is simply scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance. That way, every component within that system will be able to do its job properly, and your system will require less energy to cool your home as a result.
