It is no secret that keeping your Las Vegas home cool during the summer is an expensive endeavor. Depending on your comfort level, you could find yourself spending hundreds each month in cooling costs. There are several ways you can lower your energy bill during the summer and some of them are very simple. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to share some tips to help you lower your cooling costs this summer.
When you are outside and the temperature is in the 100s, when you walk into a home that is kept at 78, there is a big difference. By setting your thermostat at 78 during the day and 82 during the night, you can end up saving a ton of money in cooling costs if you are currently keeping the temperature in the low 70s. You will get the most for your money when you have a programmable thermostat in your home.
Install Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are often overlooked because people may not like how they look. A good ceiling fan in your home will help you feel much cooler than it actually is in your home. You can count on a ceiling fan lowering the temperature by about 5 degrees at any given time. They can be especially helpful when you have them in bedrooms for night time.
Close Your Blinds & Shades
You may be surprised at how much the windows that allow sunlight into your home can affect the overall feel of your house during the day. Sunlight will raise the temperature of your home significantly when you leave your windows open. If you like to have your blinds open during the day, you can look into having protective film put on your windows that will minimize the heat gain during the summer.
Get Your Air Conditioning Units Serviced
A big part of your energy costs during the summer depends on your maintenance habits. Your AC will run much more efficiently when you have it serviced at least once a year. This is best done in the spring before you start using it for the season. It is important that you have your system serviced by professionals that know what needs to be checked as well as cleaned to keep your AC working as efficiently as possible. You also should be changing your filters on a regular basis since the air flow into your system is going to play a big role in its efficiency as well. You can sometimes use filters that are reusable and just need to be cleaned regularly, but you should be aware that if they aren’t completely dry before putting them in your AC unit, it can create a mold problem.
