Saving Money When Going From Heating to Cooling Your Home!

how to save money on air conditioning

Worried about your bills spiking once the summer heat hits? Luckily, our expert heating and cooling technicians have plenty of insider tips to help you save money when transitioning between seasons.

Follow our advice to keep more green in your wallet, while staying comfortable all spring and summer long!

Adjust your thermostat

Installing a programmable or smart thermostat is a great way to regulate temperatures depending on your lifestyle – potentially saving a lot of money! Programmable thermostats let you set customized temps for when you are home versus away, awake versus asleep, etc. Smart thermostats learn your habits and automatically adjust for greater efficiency.

Both options save you money on your bills, without any sacrifice in comfort!

Improve air circulation

Creating good airflow allows you to raise the thermostat temp while avoiding “hot spots” in stagnant areas of your home. In summer, run ceiling fans counter-clockwise to push cool air downwards for a wind chill effect. Strategically open windows on opposite sides of the house to generate cross breezes, especially in cooler morning and evening hours.

Make sure window coverings are doing their job as well. Close blinds and drapes on sun-exposed windows during peak daylight hours to minimize heat from the sun!

Minimize heat generation

All the appliances running in your home – from ovens to gaming consoles – give off heat that can counteract your cooling efforts. In summer, avoid using the oven by grilling outdoors, cooking in crockpots, or making no-cook meals. Only run the dishwasher and laundry appliances when fully loaded.

When not in use, consider unplugging electronics and power strips. Items in standby mode still pull small amounts of energy that add up. Taking away these extra heat sources can help save you that little bit of heat from being created in your home.

Seal air leaks

Gaps around windows, doors, pipes, and wires allow hot outdoor air to sneak into your cooled home. Carefully seal all cracks and openings with caulk and weatherstripping.

Get a professional AC tune-up

Have your AC system serviced before summer to maximize efficiency and make sure everything is working properly! Our experienced technicians will thoroughly inspect your entire AC system, clean the components, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to ensure peak performance all summer long.
