Running the air conditioning as cold as you can handle is common, especially when you live in the Sunshine State. The downside of having cold air all-year-long is the surge in the price of your bills that you’ll experience. Aside from scheduled maintenance and minimal repairs throughout the life of your system, there are a few more things you can do at home that will enhance your cooling experience and save you some money.
Upgrade Your Equipment
If you’ve just moved into an older home or the current system you have hasn’t seen an update in years, it’s probably a good time to start. If you have an older edition of a thermostat, then you have a better chance of regulating the heating and cooling when you’re not home. If you have the app on your phone that is compatible, you can make the proper adjustments accordingly from anywhere.
Install Fans Where You Can
Of course, we all know that fans circulate the air that is already inside the space to make it more relaxed. With the help of ceiling fans around the house, there’s a good chance of feeler cooler during the summer months while using a lot less energy. If you want to take it one step further, you can install a fan that is connected to an app or remote to schedule times of operation or the speed.
Cover Your Windows
If you have the opportunity to use thick curtains or window shades to keep the heat to a minimum, do it! It should reduce the amount of energy your AC unit would need to use throughout the day. More so, if you have a common theme throughout your living space, the curtains will add a special touch; making them appealing to the eye and functional at the same time.
