Money-Saving HVAC Tips for Summer

HVAC money saving tips

The best HVAC money saving tips for summer cooling come from the pros. When summer heats up, and you want your home nice and cool, we’ve got a guide to the best HVAC for hot weather.

Tip #1: Don’t Skip Maintenance

HVAC maintenance is essential to ensuring your system runs the way it should to keep you cool all summer. Regular service will reduce the potential for breakdowns and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your AC.

Tip #2: Remember to Change Your Air Filter

One of the most common reasons for insufficient cooling is a dirty air filter. It makes your system work harder, raising your energy costs, and creating inconsistent cooling throughout your home. Change your air filter every 30-90 days for optimum AC.

Tip #3: Use Those Ceiling Fans

Homes in the South typically have lots of ceiling fans. Summer is a great time to put them to use. Fans work together with your air conditioner to help your home feel cooler without changing the thermostat.

Tip #4: Clean Around the Outdoor Unit

Debris can build up around your outdoor air conditioning unit during the winter months, which won’t affect it when it’s cool out, but will when the AC kicks on in the spring and summer. To ensure your system runs right, remove the leaves, branches, and debris from around the equipment.

Tip #5: Invest in a Better Thermostat

One way to enhance the performance of your HVAC system throughout the summer is by upgrading to a better thermostat. The latest programmable and smart thermostat technology makes it easier than ever to control your home’s comfort level and energy use.
