During the high heat of summer, it’s easy to overuse your HVAC unit.
We’ve developed these 5 tips you can use to save energy and money on your energy bill.
1. Make sure that your vents are clean and open.
Vents can be accidentally shut for cleaning purposes and never reopened. Be sure to check your vents in each of your rooms.
A clean vent won’t only help your energy bill, but it will also help you from breathing in any dust or debris.
2. Don’t forget about your air filters.
With your air filters, it’s important to replace them monthly. This will help your system more efficient, as clogged air filters can disrupt the airflow.
3. Invest in a programmable thermostat.
With programmable thermostats allow you to control the unit and air flow while you’re away from home. You can match the thermostat to your schedule and limit its use during prime hours.
4. Replace old air conditioning units with newer models.
If you have an older unit that hasn’t been properly maintained, you should invest in a new model. You should discuss with your local HVAC specialist about which system is best for you and your home.
During the summer, heat in your home will rise to the second floor of your home. To help hot air move out of your home, you should use fans to help move it out of your home.
