3 Ways to Cut the Cost of Your Energy Bill
In today’s economy, trying to save money can feel like an uphill battle, especially when it comes to your energy costs. But considering Florida summers are notoriously hot, using our air conditioners less in an attempt to save money is pretty much out of the question. Fortunately, there are other ways you can cut the cost of your energy bills without sacrificing comfort. Here’s what you can do:
Change the Air Filter
The air filter is one of the most important parts of your air conditioning system. Besides filtering out all of those nasty indoor air pollutants, the air filter helps your air conditioner perform at its optimal level. When your air conditioner is running at peak performance, your system doesn’t have to work as hard to provide the same cooling power. The result? Less energy usage and less money spent on energy bills. To reap these benefits, your air filter needs to be regularly changed. While some air filters vary, most should be changed each month.
Install a Ceiling Fan
While ceiling fans won’t be able to take the place of your beloved air conditioner, they can help cut your energy costs when used in conjunction with your AC. Installing a ceiling fan will help circulate the air, which will make the room of your home feel cooler. Ceiling fans will also allow you to rely less on your air conditioner, which should help cut energy costs too.
Schedule a Maintenance Checkup
Your air conditioning system is a big investment, so it’s only logical to assume it will need to be maintained in order to function its best. Just like how your car needs routine oil changes to keep running, your AC needs routine maintenance to function as efficiently as possible. During a routine maintenance checkup, an HVAC professional will perform an inspection on your entire air conditioning system. He or should will also fix any repairs found, check refrigerant levels and ensure everything is working in tip top shape. Not only do these efforts keep your system working efficiently, but it is a great way to cut the costs of your energy bill too. After all, when your air conditioner is working efficiently, it doesn’t require as much energy to produce the same cooling effects.
