Cooling your home can be a significant expense during the warmer months of the year. Fortunately, there are several steps that you can take to reduce your cooling costs during the spring and summer. The ac installation and repair experts at HRC Heating and Air of Provo can help ensure that your ac system is operating at its best efficiency. To help you save money during the peak cooling season of the year, here are some simple ways to cut down on your cooling costs.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can significantly reduce your home cooling costs during the summer. With a programmable thermostat, you will be able to set the temperature of your home to automatically adjust during certain times of the day. When you are away at work, the programmable thermostat will shut off the air conditioner. Before you return home, the thermostat will ensure that your home has been comfortably cooled for your arrival.
Switch to Energy-Efficient Window Coverings
Energy-efficient window coverings can help to cut down on your monthly cooling bills. With solar screens, you will be able to block up to seventy percent of heated sunlight from entering your home. Other window covering options include window films, which perform a similar function to solar screens. These window treatments will help your system operate more efficiently.
Use Circulating Fans
By increasing the circulation of air throughout your home, you will help your air conditioner achieve the greatest level of efficiency. To cut down on your cooling costs and air conditioning usage, you can place circulating fans throughout the interior of your home. These fans will help to send cooled air to each area of your home. By creating a gentle breeze, circulating fans can also help you feel cooler, even when your thermostat is at a higher setting.
