Keep Cool For Less

Summer has reached its peak, so your energy bills have probably spiked. If you’re looking for ways to cut down your bills while still keeping your home cool and comfortable, you’ve come to the right place.

Keep the Blinds Closed

While we highly recommend letting natural ventilation work its magic in the early morning and late afternoons, midday is not the time for air circulation. Keep your windows, doors, and curtains fully closed to prevent the sun from naturally heating your home.

Utilize Fans

Instead of opting for natural circulation during the day, try using fans throughout your home. Whether that’s an attic fan that prevents hot air from pooling in the uppermost part of your home, ceiling fans, or standalone fans, you’ll notice a huge difference with these. They will help you feel cooler without lowering the temperature on your thermostat.

Clean the AC Unit

Have you ever cleaned your AC unit? You’re probably not alone if you haven’t. A dirty or poorly maintained AC unit will be less effective and could cost you more money in the long run.

Use and Efficient Thermostat Setting

While it might be tempting to crank the thermostat all the way down when you walk inside from the hot outdoors, this will put a lot of unnecessary stress on your AC unit. Instead, keep your thermostat set to a consistent 78 degrees (the Department of Energy’s recommended temperature setting), and adjust slightly as needed.

We recommend upgrading your thermostat if you’ve had the same one for over 10 years. There have been so many advancements in the last decade that can improve cooling efficiency.
