4 Tips for Saving Energy in Hurricane This Summer 

Spring is nice for a couple reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can crack windows for fresh air and your utility bill is often at its most economical. That’s because you’re not turning on your furnace or air.

But as mercury begins to increase, so do your energy costs. Here are a couple of suggestions for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping costs lower.

1. Call for Yearly AC Maintenance

Giving your AC system a yearly maintenance appointment can help it operate more efficiently and lower costs. Changing out your air filter will help keep energy costs less expensive.

If your cooling equipment has experienced better days, spring is an excellent time to replace it. The energy-saving features in newer cooling systems is an obvious plus in keeping your energy bill down.

2. Turn Down Your Thermostat

There’s a simple way you can save up to 10% on HVAC charges. Just dial your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours during the day.

Figuring out how to efficiently use your thermostat is the best way to lower energy costs in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Consider it this way, the smaller the difference between outside temperatures and inside temperatures, the cheaper your air conditioning expense will be.
    • When you’re out, set the thermostat to a lot higher temperature or turn it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty home.

3. Take Advantage of Other Ways to Cool Your House

You can turn to a few other things to help keep your residence comfortable:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By starting a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no decrease in comfort. Have your fan turn counterclockwise when it’s warm out, which pushes cool air upward. This moves cool air more equally when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds closed—Sunlight quickly converts to heat as it moves through windows. Keep your house more comfortable by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not using sunny areas.

4. Think About Getting a Smart Thermostat

You’re out of the house and abruptly realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you worry about it the full day!

Smart thermostats figure out your habits and change the temp when you’re not around to help you save on your bills. You can also set the temperature from anywhere with your phone.
