While AC makes the summer bearable in the Vegas Valley, there is always a constant struggle with the comfort level vs the cost to run the AC. All of us would love to keep our homes right around 72 degrees on a daily basis, however, it costs a significant amount of money to do that. When it comes to keeping yourself comfortable and keeping the AC system efficient, there is a sweet spot. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about where you should have your thermostat set at to get the best bang for your buck.
How Do I Find My Optimum Temperature?
Ever read the story about Goldilocks and the Three Bears? This little girls like everything “just right.” Kind of like us with our AC systems in the summertime. We want the temperature to be cool enough that we can survive and be comfortable, but we don’t want it to be low enough that it is wasting energy while constantly trying to achieve such a goal. Studies show, that keeping your thermostat set at 78 degrees will give you the relief you want as well as the efficiency you are after.
Is it Necessary to Service AC Every Year?
Your AC system will only run efficiently when you are having maintenance performed on it at least once a year. When you care for your unit properly, you will find that it runs much more efficiently. Not only will you stay on top of repairs, but your unit will get a thorough cleaning as well as any other maintenance that is needed.
Ways You Could Be Heating Your Home Unknowingly
There are several ways that you could be heating up your home without realizing it. Several things that you use in your home generate heat. Appliances like your dryer, dishwasher and your over can generate enough heat that they end up heating up your home while being used. Avoid using them as much as possible during the summer months to help keep your AC unit efficient and your energy bills low.
Use Ceiling Fans
If 78 degrees feels too hot for you to stay comfortable, you may consider using fans to help move the air around. When you use a ceiling fan, it can help your home feel up to 5 degrees cooler than you have the thermostat set at. Moving the cooled air in your room can help immensely. It will cost only a fraction of the cost turning down the temperature in your home costs when you use a fan of some sort.
