Luckily, there are plenty of ways that we can stay cool without breaking the bank.

1. Fans Help to Stay Cool…

Who knew that fans would become your number one supporter in staying cool… Ceiling fans help the airflow circulate better around your home, making it feel colder than what the temperature shows. You may also use a portable fan for the rooms that do not have a ceiling fan! In the winter, ceiling fans help push the hot air down. Making it comfortable in your home. But, you will be hearing more about that tip in a later post.

2. Keep the Air Filter Clean…

Always, always, always change the air filter on time. It makes a huge difference in your A/C system. Dirty air filters can become a hazard. If you have children or pets, it is important that you do have a clean air filter. Dirty air filters also make the A/C does double the work than it needs to. When the filter is not changed, the airflow is reduced, causing the A/C to work twice as harder than usual. Changing the air filter is something that takes a few minutes to change. If you ever need help, give us a call.

3. Set A/C to “Auto”…

Setting your A/C system to Auto makes a big difference in your electric bill. When you leave your Air Conditioning system on “cool” or “on” it increases the cost, making your electric bill higher than normal. While you are not home, this setting helps regulate the temperature for your A/C  to not overwork while you are not home.

With these tips, you’ll not only be able to save money but stay cool!
