Warmer weather is right around the corner in Hurricane, which means it’s almost time to turn on your air conditioner. But just because it’s about to be the air conditioning season doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to keep your home comfortable. From boosting your home’s efficiency to adding a programmable thermostat, there are a number of ways to beat the summer heat without driving up your monthly energy expenses.
One of the easiest ways to keep your air conditioner running at peak performance is by swapping out your home’s air filter every month during the summer. Your air conditioner’s peak season is just around the corner, which means that you’ll be relying on it pretty heavily. Running your air conditioner constantly can quickly build up dirt and dust on your air filter, making it harder for your system to move the same amount of air. Over time that can mean AC repair, which no one wants to deal with when the temperatures in Hurricane get their hottest. Keeping a fresh filter in your system can help you boost efficiency and keep your home more comfortable while you’re at it.
Programmable thermostats aren’t new, but they have evolved quite a bit over the last few years, allowing homeowners to experience new levels of control and comfort. What often goes unnoticed is how a perfectly programmed thermostat can help increase your air conditioner’s efficiency and make a dent in your monthly energy expenses. By keeping your home warmer when you are away, you can give your air conditioner a break and take advantage of the savings that come with not cooling an empty home.
When you leave your home, closing your blinds and shades can help keep unwanted heat out of your home. When left open, that heat can trigger your air conditioner to turn on even when you’re not there, driving up costs and unnecessarily using energy that you’re not even feeling the benefits of. Even in climates like Hurricane you can take advantage of blackout curtains to help keep even more heat out of your home.
Knowing that the temperature is on the rise in Hurricane brings about great joy, so don’t let high energy bills change that. There are a number of easy changes you can make to increase efficiency and keep your home comfortable.
