ENERGY STAR® room air conditioners use 10% less energy and can cost less than $75 per year to run, on average.
Place your room air conditioner in a shaded window. Heat from sunlight might cause the unit thermostat to misread room temperature and run longer. A TV or lamp placed near the unit might have the same effect.
Install insulation materials included with your AC unit. Be sure to also inspect your home insulation. On average, 10% to 25% of energy used to cool homes escapes through air leaks.
