Energy efficiency seems a little out of reach when you need to keep your home cool in the sweltering heat of summer. But there are some ways you can lower your energy bill and still stay cool in Columbia. Take a look at some of the best practices recommended by the pros.

Change Your Air Filter

Something as simple as an air filter change can have a big impact on your HVAC energy use. When your filter is dirty or clogged, your air conditioner has to work extra hard to pull in air for cooling. All of this extra work means extra energy use and higher energy bills.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

An older model thermostat isn’t doing your energy bills any favors. An upgrade to a programmable or smart thermostat can save you significantly. When you take advantage of its programming capabilities, you can customize when and how you cool your home. Instead of keeping it ultra-cool when you’re not home, you can program it to adjust for when you need more and less air conditioning.

Service Your System

Annual spring maintenance for your HVAC system is one of the best ways to keep your equipment from burning through your budget. When serviced in the spring before you turn on the AC, you know it’s running in tip-top shape. When it’s running right, it’s going to be more efficient and use less energy to keep your home comfortable.
