Can you increase your energy efficiency this summer without giving up your nice, cool house? If you want to save money without sacrificing comfort, you've come to the right place. Here are two quick ways to boost your home’s energy efficiency and save money this summer:
Tip #1: Upgrade Your Thermostat
A smart thermostat is one of the quickest and easiest ways to increase your energy efficiency during the hot summer months. Most people don’t need to have their house ultra-cool when they’re not home. Having the air conditioning cranked up 24/7 is not only wasteful, but it will result in cranked up energy bills, too. Program your thermostat to keep your house warmer when you don’t need it to be super cool, and cooler when you do. This can save you up to 30% on your energy bills.
Tip #2: Maintain the System
Another way to make sure your system is running at its most efficient is to maintain it properly. You should have a tech come in and service your heating and cooling system twice a year. Not only will regular service help catch small issues before they become big problems, but it can keep your system clean, calibrated and running as it should. When it is, it will use less energy and help you spend less money on your energy bills.
There are lots of ways to save energy and spend less money, but when it comes to your air conditioning, you don't want to sacrifice the cool to save money. With these quick tips, you don't have to.
