Temperatures in the summer can be unpleasant due to high temperatures. After being outside in the sun, you may look to seek shelter inside your cool and comfortable home. Keeping your house at a satisfying temperature may be hurting your wallet due to the A/C running constantly.
The hotter it is outside, the harder your air conditioner has to work to keep the house cool, which can turn into a high energy bill. There are steps you can take to help elevate some of the sting of your bill, and the Brooklyn air conditioning experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating are here to help you.
Here are a few tips to help you lower your A/C bill this summer!
Fans can be a major key to saving money during the summer. Using fans to circulate cold air throughout the home makes it easier to keep it cooler, reducing the burden placed on the A/C unit. You may also consider using fans as a replacement for turning on your air conditioner. It takes much less energy to turn a fan on than it does an entire A/C unit.
When the temperatures are cool at night, leave a window open or cracked to create a draft in your house. The cold air from outside can help cool down a room or even your entire home. Similar to fans, this will reduce the burden placed on your A/C unit and help reduce energy. Once the outdoor air warms up, close all of the windows.
One of the most important and easiest ways to help save money is by regularly changing the filters in your A/C unit. This will limit the strain on your air conditioner and also promote a healthy home by creating cleaner air.
