After a long winter of running your furnace, summer is finally here and it’s time to have some fun. To get the most out of your summer, you need to be comfortable in your home. Here are some tips to help you stay cool this summer.
Use a Programmable Thermostat
This simple device lets you control the temperature of your house even if you’re away. You’ll be able to keep your AC off while you’re gone, run it a few hours in the afternoon or evening, and turn it off late at night. Since you’ll be running it when you need it most, you can keep cool while saving money.
Close Your Vents
Closing vents in unused rooms can save you 5% to 10% on your energy costs. Whether you benefit from the refrigerated air or not, you’re paying to condition those rooms.
Clean Your Filter
Cleaning or changing your air filter maintains the quality of the air that you breathe and reduces the number of allergens and pollutants in your home. It also allows your air conditioning to run more efficiently.
Service Your Unit
Maintaining your air conditioning unit will maximize its efficiency and save you money on your air conditioning bills. Have your unit inspected for quality and safety by an air conditioning service professional. This will ensure that your AC works all summer and for many summers to come.
