How To Save Energy & Keep Your Las Vegas Home Cool This Spring Time
The weather is changing and the cool weather will quickly turn just warm enough that you have to turn on the air conditioning unit. It is a great way to keep your home cooled off and comfortable for everyone that is inside. The warmer the weather is outside, the lower that you are most likely going to set the temperature on the thermostat. The problem is that if you are not taking steps to be more efficient you are likely going to waste energy and lose the cool air at the same time. You may be setting your thermostat to a temperature that you want and your air conditioning unit will run to try and reach that, but it may never make it that low. The energy is still being spent and that turns into dollars on your energy bill. The power or electricity bill that keeps track of the usage goes up during the warmer months since the AC unit is one of the biggest draws on your energy.

Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning has some ways that you can be sure you are not wasting energy while cooling your home.
Set Your Digital Thermostat: This is the best way to be sure that you are not wasting energy while cooling your home. A digital thermostat is manufactured to be set to run at different times and different days. You can set the air conditioner to cool to a very specific temperature when you are normally home and have it go up a few degrees while everyone is away from the home. The settings can be done once and will last the entire spring or summer. You can also change the settings to accommodate different schedules on the weekend etc.
Have Your HVAC Unit and Ductwork Inspected: This is a great way to ensure that your unit is working correctly. Have a professional company come out and inspect the unit, especially at the beginning of the weather change and right when you are switching from heater to cooler. The professional can also look for any small areas that need repair or tune ups.
Seal Up Air Leaks Around Windows & Doors: This is a great way to make sure that your cooled down air is not escaping through a window or door. You can start with weather stripping along your doors and windows and check for cracked or worn. If they are in any way damaged you can have them replaced by going to a home improvement store.
