Many people rejoice when summer finally arrives, but we understand you might be dreading the heat because it will cost more money to keep your house cool. Our team wants you to understand there are ways to keep your home comfortable without costing a fortune. Uncover some helpful tips below and start noticing a difference in this summer’s bill.
Routine Maintenance- Making sure your air conditioner is working correctly is a part of maintaining it. You should also regularly change the air filter, so your unit does not have to work harder to keep your home cool.
Seal All Drafts- Newer homes probably will not have this problem, but if you live in an older house, you should check all windows and doors for any drafts. It might not seem like much, but it can cost you money all summer when the cold air seeps out of your home.
Quick Showers- When you step out of a hot shower, the bathroom is filled with warm air, which could potentially cause your air conditioner to work longer to cool the house. Limiting the duration of your shower or turning the water temperature to cold can help keep your home cool all summer long.
