Ways To Save Energy and Money When AC Is A Must

Now that spring is here and summer is creeping closer, it's safe to assume running your air conditioner is a must. Although we all love the warmer days, we could certainly do without the costly cooling bills. Check out a few tips on how you can stay cool without breaking the bank.

Program wisely.
There is no need to have your ac system running when no one is home and during the night hours. Programming your ac system to setback while you're at work and while you're asleep can save you a lot of money on your next bill.

Portable units.
If your home is without a central air unit, window units can get the job done using 50% less energy! Place window units in the areas of your home you're utilizing the most such as bedrooms and living rooms.

Maintenance.
Whens the last time you called your local hvac professionals to service your unit? Regular maintenance can help save you money on costly repairs and keep debris and other particles out that may be causing your unit to work harder.

Fans.
Although central ac units and window units are desirable, don't discredit the power of a fan. Fans help circulate air and use less energy than air conditioners do. Fans can be great options for rooms without air conditioning units and for nighttime.

Lighting.
Keeping your lights off during the warmer months is another way to reduce heat in your home. Keeping your blinds and drapes closed while you aren't home is another way to keep cool air in and heat from the sun out.
