Running the air conditioning all day can increase the amount of energy that you use. As temperatures go up this summer, the thermostat needle goes down. Conserve energy and save on your utility bill this season with these tips to help you use energy efficiently.
Update Your Thermostat.
A programmable thermostat can make all the difference when it comes to cooling your home efficiently. You’re better able to control the temperature so that you can turn it off when you’re not home, or turn off the thermostat once the temperature is comfortable.
Inspect Your Vents.
The cooling ducts and vents throughout your home may have a leak or two which makes them less efficient. Instead, you use more energy to keep your home cool. Have your vents inspected so that you can repair any issues.
Seal Any Leaks.
Holes or gaps in your home can let hot air onto your cool home, making your home’s cooling system work harder than it needs to. Seal any cracks or leaks around doors and windows to use energy more efficiently.
Avoid Cooking on Extra Hot Days.
Using a hot stove or oven on a warm day can make your home feel even warmer. Avoid cooking on hot days to help stay cool.
Maximizing Cooling with a Fan.
A ceiling fan can help to increase ventilation in your home. Pair your air conditioning use with your fan use to keep your home cool. When using the ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat by 4 degrees to save energy without compromising on comfort.
