As we approach the more humid months of the year, you may be thinking of ways to keep your cooling bill down. Luckily, there are easy ways to keep your home cool without having to break the bank.
Check out these 4 easy tips to get the most out of your AC unit without spending a fortune on your utility bills:
Having Your AC Unit Run more Economically
While it may be more comfortable to set your air conditioning unit to 65 degrees and have it running all day, keeping it at the highest temperature you’re able to tolerate can save you a significant amount of money over the course of the summer months. If your AC unit has the functionality to do so, you should also have your air conditioning turn off when you’re not home, or at least to a higher temperature when the warmer weather kicks in.
Keeping Your Curtains And Windows Closed
An often overlooked tactic, keeping your curtains closed will impede your home from internally heating up. Similarly, making sure your windows are closed and making sure that everyone in your home is conscious of keeping your windows closed is a simple yet effective way to keep the cool air in your home.
Using A Fan
Having a fan in the home helps the cold air your air conditioning unit produces circulate throughout the house, helping to keep your entire house cool. This means that you don’t need as much air conditioning pumped into the home – a very efficient way to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Maintaining Your AC Unit
Sometimes, all you need is to have your air conditioning unit serviced to have it running smoothly and efficiently again. Performing regular AC maintenance increases the lifespan of the unit, which can save you a significant amount of money.
