Just as winter can bring brutal cold, summer brings extreme heat. The summer months are the time when electricity bills skyrocket and you pay the price for cool living.
A dirty filter reduces your air conditioner’s efficiency, uses more energy and costs your more money. Changing or cleaning your air filter helps maintain the lifespan of your machine and helps save you money on energy costs.
If your home has a thermostat that controls the central air conditioner, consider using a programmable thermostat to help with setting home temperatures. With a programmable thermostat, you can automatically set the temperature to be higher when you aren’t at home during the day or when you go to sleep at night to decrease energy consumption and spending.
A window unit requires much less energy than central air and can easily be used for cooling smaller areas. Take the time to really consider your needs and how much your air conditioning will be used, and then choose the best unit for your situation.
Your air conditioning unit needs regular maintenance, just like any other machine in your home. A professional can help to determine inefficiencies and control excess costs prior to the extreme summer or winter months.
