Nothing feels better on a sweltering summer day then an arctic tundra like greeting of cool air conditioning. Use these tips to stay cool while keeping your summer power bill low.
Unused electronic items will continue to draw electricity, even when not being actively operated. Consider connecting all appliances that do not require continuous energy in a room to a single power strip which can be powered on and off with a single switch. Gadget lovers can invest in smart power strips which can be timed to supply electricity only at prescheduled times or when it detects usage is low.
Why pay top dollar to divert precious air conditioning to low traffic areas? If your guest room or spare bathroom see little action, close doors and vents to these spaces to decrease the demands on your HVAC unit and divert cooling power to the areas which count.
Using your oven even at relatively low baking temperatures is a fast track to heating up your home. Prepare cool summer dishes in your kitchen. If you have a grill or barbecue, go outside and use it where the heat will dissipate harmlessly into the air to grill up some burgers to go with your cool summer salad.
For the most competitive pricing, avoid the crowd and have it inspected and serviced before the heat reaches its peak. Even a simple air filter replacement can cut your summer HVAC energy usage by up to 15 percent. During months of heavy use, replace or clean your filter on a monthly basis to maintain optimum functioning.
Climbing temperatures doesn’t have to mean an escalating electricity bill. Use your power strategically to stay comfortable and avoid exorbitant energy prices. Use these handy suggestions and go ahead, crank up the AC.
