Douglasville Air Conditioning Company Offers Money Saving Tips

If you have been running your AC this summer, you may be receiving some of the highest power bills of the year. With the kind of heat we have been having here in Douglasville, it can be easy to run up an expensive and overwhelming energy bill from the constant use of your air conditioner.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind during these sweltering months to help keep energy usage as low as possible:

Lower the cost of your energy bill with these easy tips.

1. Weatherize your home – Your home should be kept airtight and insulated in order to keep all of your cool air inside the home. It will also keep the very hot outside heat from seeping in. Insulating your home  and achieving an airtight home is really a simple job.
2. Check your thermostat – What temperature is your thermostat set at? This is one of the easiest and best ways to reduce your energy bill. During prime cooling season, any temperature below 78° is going to dramatically increase your energy bill. For maximum savings, set the thermostat at 78°. And if you don’t already, have a programmable thermostat installed. This will allow you to set the temperature and leave it be. An automatic response to temperature changes not only saves you money, but improves your comfort.
3. Get a Tune-Up – Your AC is just like your vehicle. It needs maintenance to work properly and efficiently. If you have not had your AC tuned up by an HVAC professional, you could be wasting money every month on your power bill. Call a professional  to schedule a maintenance visit. This will allow your AC unit to function efficiently, therefore saving you money on your bill.
