Come summertime, an air conditioner operating at optimal efficiency is essential. No wonder air conditioning has become all but standard in American homes. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, 75 percent of American homes feature an air conditioner of one type or another. Additionally, air conditioning units use 6 percent of all electricity produced in the United States, costing American homeowners around $29 billion a year. On the face of it, this second statistic might seem daunting. Considering America’s increased focus on both environmental issues and cost efficiency, making an investment in energy use reduction would be wise for many homeowners.
