Answer: "In most Florida homes, air conditioning accounts for approximately 50 percent or more of the annual electric bill. Here are some tips to start controlling your energy consumption. Keep your thermostat at 78° with the fan switch on ""auto."" Turn ceiling fans off when no one is in the room. Ceiling fans do not actually cool a room. They just make you feel cooler. Clean or change your A/C filter once a month. Maintain proper airflow through your system. Keep sunlight out during summer months. Call us to access your A/C ducts for leaks. Consider buying a new A/C system. The older your A/C system is, the less efficient it is."
