Energy Saving Tips For Your Home This Summer
As spring turns to summer here on the South Shore, your air conditioning is being used more often every single day. And that usage is going to increase as we head into July and August, since this summer is predicted to be hotter than normal.
If that gives you the chills because you’re worried about your energy costs, Frank Lamparelli is here to help with some simple ways you can reduce your energy usage without sacrificing cool comfort:
Get your air conditioning system its annual tune-up
Now is the time to get the A/C serviced so it’s ready for summer! With the hot summer coming, the last thing you want is an air conditioning breakdown.
Regular maintenance helps prevent those breakdowns and also helps keep the A/C running at its best possible efficiency. And when you consider that cooling your home can make up half of your energy costs this time of year, maintenance can lead to some hefty savings. Our service department is now scheduling A/C tune-ups – so make sure to give us a call; as COVID restrictions ease, we anticipate a large volume of outreach and our schedule may fill up quick!
Be smart with your programmable thermostat
Cut your cooling costs by turning the A/C temperature setting about 7 degrees higher for eight hours a day, especially if you’re out of the house. With a programmable thermostat, it’s even easier, as you set it once, and you don’t have to worry about it again. Upgrade to a smart thermostat, and you can control or monitor your home’s HVAC system through your smartphone or tablet 24/7!
