Are you looking for ways to lower your energy bill this season? Summers should be time for fun in the sun—not time for worrying about sky-high energy costs. But cooling your home is, without a doubt, the most significant summer energy expense for homeowners. Check out the three greatest hacks to decrease energy usage in your home so you can achieve a lower energy bill without sacrificing comfort.
#1: Use a Ceiling Fan
Using the ceiling fan is an energy-saving hack many homeowners forget. Simply flipping on the ceiling fans in your home can promote better disbursement of cool air. Make sure your fan blades are running counterclockwise, which works to push the cool air down to create a nice, cool breeze. As a result, you can turn the thermostat up a few degrees and still maintain a comfortable environment.
#2: Develop Smart Energy-Saving Habits
Taking small steps to save energy throughout the day is a way to reduce energy costs. All the little things add up to help you save big over the course of the summer. Add these habits to your daily household routine to prevent your AC from overworking and lower your energy bill:
#3: Schedule Professional Preventative Maintenance
The ultimate energy-bill-lowering hack will always be preventative maintenance from a professional HVAC company. Countless homeowners pay too much for energy costs each year because they have neglected regular HVAC maintenance and tune-ups. When you invest in the right maintenance services, you will increase your system’s efficiency, which translates to lower energy bills and a longer lifespan for your system.
