Let’s face it—everyone is looking for ways to save money this summer, and learning a few HVAC money-saving tricks is a great place to start. Most people have the highest energy bills during the hottest months of the year. With a few proactive, preventative tips and tricks for your AC, you can maximize your climate control and budget.
Change the HVAC Air Filter Regularly
Dirty, clogged AC air filters inhibit the airflow the system requires to distribute cool air efficiently. That means your system must work harder to reach the setting on your thermostat; this extra effort increases your energy bill. Change air filters regularly—at least every three months. If you have pets, you may need to change the filter every 30-60 days for best results.
Use Your Ceiling Fans
By turning on your ceiling fans, you are increasing your HVAC’s energy efficiency. The fans work to make the room feel cooler faster by encouraging air circulation. Running a ceiling fan can enable you to keep your thermostat setting a little higher and remain comfortable, saving you money on your monthly energy bill.
Schedule Preventative Maintenance with the Pros
Turning to a trusted HVAC team for preventative maintenance is the #1 way to keep your system as efficient as possible. The technicians will clean and tune up the system to achieve peak performance, keeping your home cool and lowering your energy costs.
