15 Jun How to Reduce Your Air Conditioning Bill
The first day of summer is just a few days away — is your family ready for the summer heat? Here are a few tips to help you reduce your air conditioning bill and keep your home cool for less.
Tips to Stay Cool for Less:
- Install a Programmable Thermostat – You don’t need to keep your home cool when you’re not there. Installing a programmable thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature when your home, and when you’re not. Even by changing the thermostat by a few degrees, you can save on your energy bill.
- Use Your Ceiling Fans – Although the ceiling fans themselves won’t cool down the room, they will create a breeze and circulate your air conditioned air throughout your home.
- Change Your Air Filters – Your air filters become dirty over time, clogging your air conditioning system and keeping it from working efficiently. Changing your air filters will keep your home cool without having your A/C unit work harder.
- Plant Trees – Trees provide natural shade and keep the sun from beating down directly on your home. Plant leafy trees near windows where the sun shines directly into your home.
