Lower Your Electricity Bills This Summer – Your Top Air-Conditioning Tips

With the temperatures rising, the last thing you want to worry about is your electricity bill increasing with it. Every degree you turn your thermostat down means more money you could be paying to cool your home. Here are some tips to help you avoid an expensive air-conditioning bill this summer:

  • Utilize Your Fans

Even though a fan won’t technically cool off a room, it will make you feel cooler by creating a wind chill effect. Fans are said to make you feel about 4 degrees cooler. This means you can raise the temperature on your thermostat and ultimately save on your utility bill.

  • Purchase a Programmable Thermostat

There is no point in cooling a home that no one is occupying. Instead of trying to remember to keep adjusting the temperature before you leave, you can purchase a programmable thermostat that will automatically adjust it for you. This allows you to set the time you want the conditioner to turn on instead of allowing it to run all day.

  • Keep Your Window Treatments Closed

As the sun shines into your home, the heat from it can quickly heat up the rooms. This requires your air conditioner to run much longer to keep the home cool. To avoid this, you need to keep all blinds and curtains closed. This will eliminate direct sunlight into the home.
