We hope that you enjoyed your nice low utility bills during the winter months here in the Las Vegas Valley. You are probably already stressing out about your summer utility bills. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips for you to help you keep your summer cooling costs down as much as possible.
Keep Air Conditioner Maintenance Schedule
The first thing that you should do is get your routine maintenance appointment scheduled with Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning. We will send one of our technicians out to your home to check out your air conditioning unit. They will inspect all of the different parts of your system and make sure that everything is in excellent condition. Making sure your unit is running properly before it has to start working hard to keep your house cool is always a fantastic idea. Having your maintenance completed can also help you avoid costly repairs.
Home Energy Audit
Another thing that you can do to help you save money during the summer is have a home energy audit completed. An energy audit can help you see the areas where your home is not as efficient as it should be. Our auditors will give you a list of different things that you can do to make your home as efficient as possible. One simple way to make your home more energy efficient is to make sure that your windows are properly caulked. Many times your cool air is simply leaking out of your home through cracks in your windows.
During the summer months the sun beats down on to your home each and every day. If you have your blinds open you will let more sun enter into your home which in turn causes your home to be warmer. Even though the extra daylight can be a nice way to keep your home nice and bright the extra heat is just simply not worth it. Keeping your blinds closed during the warmest part of the day is especially crucial.
Use Ceiling Fans to Make Home Cooler
Using fans can also help keep your home cooler. Fans help the air in your room circulate which makes your room feel cooler. Studies show that fans can make your rooms feel up to 10 degrees cooler. You can purchase standing fans or install ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are advantageous because they do not get in your way. Ceiling fans can also help provide lighting for your rooms.
When you are trying to decide what temperature to keep your thermostat at there are many things to consider. The cooler you keep your house in the summer the more it will cost to keep your home at the temperature you desire. We recommend that you keep your thermostat as warm as you can feel comfortable in. You may have to play with what temperature your family prefers.
