Even though spring has barely started in Florida, the typical summery heat is already beginning to take hold in some parts of the “Sunshine State.” If you live in Plantation FL, you may have already started relying on your AC to stay comfortable. Unfortunately, a thermostat set below 78 degrees will hike your energy bill up – especially as it gets harder and harder for your air conditioning to cool your home.
Lucky for you, there happens to be a lot you can do to keep your home comfortable at low to no cost! To keep your bill manageable and your home cool, we recommend you do the following:
Pro tip: if your fan has the different settings, make sure that the blades are spinning counterclockwise (pushing air down). Clockwise rotations are for the winter, when air is being drawn up.
Pro tip: Ask us about installing a programmable thermostat in your home, which can automatically raise your thermostat for you when you’re not home – and set it back down for when you get back.
Hopefully these tips will help keep your home’s temperature down, as well as your energy bill. The best tip out of them all, however, is simple: don’t settle for less when it comes to your home’s AC installation! At All Year Cooling, our certified and licensed experts will size your unit exactly to your needs, so that your system works well and lasts long.
