Tips on Keeping Your Home Cooler During the Summer by Central Carolina Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical
Summer can wreak havoc on electric bills as AC units have to work harder and run longer to keep your home and even temperature. There are many things you can do to help keep your system working well and keep your home cooler.
Here are a few tips for you to stay cooler and safe money on your bill:
- Having a professional check and maintain your AC unit annually can drastically improve the performance of your AC unit by cleaning out debris, checking for leaks and improving air quality!
- Keep your blinds closed during the day to keep out extra heat from the sun
- Purchase a programmable thermostat that allows the temperature to adjust upwards during the day by a few degrees and then down shortly before you come home from work
- Consider light reducing window covering treatments on areas of the home that get the most direct sun. Medium covered draperies with white backing can reduce as much as 33% of heat gain.
