Summer months can be brutal when it comes to your energy bill, especially living in Las Vegas. You want to keep your house cool and not have to spend a ton of money. So how do keep your energy bill from not breaking the bank? Let’s have Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning give you a few tips on how to lower your energy cost this summer.
Use a Programmable Thermostat
Make sure you have a thermostat that you can program. When you program your thermostat, you can set your temperature to be lower at night and higher during the day. The great thing about having a programmable thermostat is you don’t have to worry about frequently changing the temperature setting. The thermostat will just adjust the temperature automatically to the temperature you set it at on the program. This is also great for when you go on vacation so don’t have to worry about your house being too cold or hot while you are gone.
Utilize Ceiling Fans
If you have ceiling fans, use them. If you don’t have any, you should look into installing some. With a ceiling fan, it will pull cool air up to the ceiling and create a cooling wind to help cool your home. Yes, you will still want your AC going but it won’t have to run as much to cool your home.
Close Curtains & Blinds During the Day
You may love having the natural light coming into your home. Maybe you always want your blinds open to let it in. Did you know that you can save 10-15% on summer cooling costs by closing blinds when not at home? Yes, it may be a pain closing your blinds when you leave. But if you are working all day and not home, keep them closed and save some money on your energy bill.
Clean Air Conditioner Units & Vents
Replacing your air filter is a necessary part of having an air conditioning system. It helps your air conditioning stay cleaner and have less problems. Did you know that replacing a dirty filter in your AC unit can also lower your energy consumption by up to 15%? Changing your air filters once a month can help in so many ways.
Schedule an AC Tune-Up
When your air conditioning is running properly then it can also help your energy cost. You don’t want your air conditioning to be overworked when it doesn’t need to be. The best way to make sure you don’t have problems with your air conditioning is by scheduling a tune-up and having a professional check out your air conditioning.
