2 Easy Tips to Save Money on Energy Bills when it Comes to Cooling
Step #1 – AC Cost Saving Tip – Proper Maintenance
Our first recommendation is to make sure your air conditioner is being used appropriately. Many people forget this step or simply skip over it. If you ensure your HVAC is maintained properly, your unit will have to do less work and therefore save energy. General maintenance is all that is required to ensure your unit is properly maintained. We also recommend some cleaning as well to keep your unit in a good condition. The good news is that Nelson Comfort is here too offer that maintenance and cleaning to ensure that your HVAC is running to its best ability. If you want to save money this summer, we highly recommend you keep up your maintenance and cleaning on your HVAC units to make sure your air conditioner has to do less work, and in doing so saves energy.
Step #2 – AC Cost Saving Tip – Adjust the Temperature
Another useful tip Nelson has to offer is to think about setting your house or business temperature a few degrees higher. This is an easy solution that keeps you and your family in a comfortable situation. Often, especially when using NEST thermostats, you can program your thermostat. This saves money since you can set the temperature higher when you aren’t home, and it can automatically be handled. When coming home, your pre-programmed thermostat will know to make the house a little cooler again. There are even ways to program your thermostat so that the temperature changes while you are asleep without you even realizing it. We recommend installing more Eco-Friendly thermostat options like NEST into your home. In doing so you can maximize your energy conservation and save money while doing so.
