operating

condenser. This is an energy efficient design whereby
the water cools the condenser.
l
Air movement from the fan.

Clicks from the thermostat cycling on and off.

Vibrations or noise due to poor wall or window
construction.

A high pitched hum or pulsating noise caused by the

Energy
saving
tips
You can help save energy by reducing
your air
conditioner's
work load:
l
Improve your home's insulation. Seal doors and win-
dows. Close fireplace flue.
l
Close blinds or drapes on the sunny side of your house.
Add awnings.
l
Check air filter often to make sure it is clean.
l
Do not block airflow with drapes or furniture.
l
Ventilate your attic. High temperatures in the attic add to
the cooling load of your air conditioner.
l
Try not to use heat-producing appliances during the
hottest part of the day.
l
Turn lights and appliances off when they are not needed.
. Keep heat registers and cool-air returns closed.

doing laundry.
