New York City program aims to make air conditioners more efficient

No matter what kind of air conditioner you have, it's possible to make it more efficient if you use it only when you need to.

It may be hard to believe, but the dog days of summer are really just a few months away, which means that now is the best time to purchase a window air conditioner. Rather than waiting for that first heat wave, when the high temperatures send the people of your city running to purchase one of these cooling devices from their local big box retailer only to find them completely sold out, make sure that you have yours ready to go by the time the hot weather is here in full force. 

And while air conditioners are much more energy-efficient now than they once were, it can be hard to remain vigilant about remembering to turn yours off while you're not home or awake to enjoy the cool air that it provides. In an effort to prevent city-wide blackouts and improve energy efficiency across its large population, New York City is implementing a new plan that would allow residents to control their ACs through any Web browser or smartphone.

Best of all, this innovative energy saving plan won't require that anyone purchase a new appliance. Instead, New Yorkers will be given the option of installing a special accessory for their electrical outlet called the Modlet. This device plugs into an existing outlet and monitors the amount of electricity coming from that specific port. Users can then access their Modlet online to switch the outlet on or off depending on their needs. 

The program seems like an easy one, and a much simpler way to get the word out about energy efficiency during the summer time. It turns out that if you put some thought into it, it is possible to stay cool and remain green at the same time.
