4 Tips for Saving Energy in Central This Summer 

Spring is wonderful for more than a few reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can crack windows for fresh air and your power bill is normally at its lowest. That’s because you’re not using your heater or air conditioner.

But as temperatures begin to rise, so do your energy charges. Here are a couple of ideas for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping payments less expensive.

1. Book Annual AC Maintenance

Giving your cooling system an annual maintenance appointment can help it run more efficiently and lower costs. Replacing your air filter will help keep power charges low.

If your HVAC equipment has seen better days, spring is a smart time to upgrade it. The energy-saving features in modern cooling systems is a huge benefit for keeping your energy charges down.

2. Start with Your Thermostat

There’s an easy way you can save up to 10% on home comfort expenses. Just turn your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours during the day.

Learning how to efficiently use your thermostat is the smartest way to reduce energy charges in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Consider it this way, the smaller the difference between outdoor temperatures and inside temperatures, the lower your cooling expense will be.
    • When you’re away, set the thermostat to a lot higher temperature or shut it off. It doesn’t make sense to cool an empty residence.

3. Try Other Methods to Cool Your House

You can turn to several other methods to help keep your home at the right temperature:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By using a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no decrease in comfort. Have your fan turn counterclockwise during the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This disperses cool air more evenly when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds closed—Sunlight quickly transforms into heat as it comes through windows. Keep your residence comfortable by closing blinds and curtains when you’re not staying in sunny spaces.

4. Look Into Getting a Smart Thermostat

You’re out and about and immediately realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you worry about it the whole day!

Smart thermostats learn your habits and adjust the temp when you’re out and about to help you save energy and money. You can also change the temperature from anywhere with your phone.
