Summer is here, and most everyone is enjoying hanging out at the pool or going on vacation before school starts again. While summer is the time for outdoor fun, it’s good to return to a cool and comfortable home by making sure you have an air conditioning system that runs effectively.
Depending on how cool you like to keep your home, you might notice your energy bills start to spike a bit during summer, as you use your air conditioner more and more. Summers are a time when your AC is running almost nonstop, which can eat into your budget as energy costs climb.
Be aware of whether your system needs repairs or if your costs are just higher due to constant use.
To help you save money this summer, our professionals have put together this list of cost-saving tips:
- Turn up the thermostat or purchase a programmable one to save money on cooling costs when no one is home.
- Change your air filters. This helps keep your unit from struggling for air exchange.
- Schedule HVAC maintenance. Maintenance will save you money all year.
- Replace your old unit. If the above tips don’t help, you may need to replace your unit.
