How to Cut Cooling Costs

How to Cut Cooling Costs

Our expert technicians are here for youSchedule Online Today

Living in Florida, you know all too well how unbearable the incessant summer heat can be. So when you get an outrageously high electric bill from running your air conditioner, it only adds insult to injury. Fortunately, there are lots of small efforts you can take to cut your cooling costs without sacrificing your comfort. Here are four quick tips to get you started.

1. Use Your Ceiling Fans

This tip might sound like a no-brainer, but so many homeowners underestimate the cooling power of a simple ceiling fan. While it’s true that ceiling fans won’t decrease the overall temperature of a room, they will circulate the air and can make you feel up to five degrees cooler. By utilizing your ceiling fans, you can limit the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run, meaning you’ll benefit from using less energy.

2. Invest In High-Quality Curtains

Curtains not only add a beautiful look to your home, but the right curtains can significantly reduce the amount of heat gain inside of your home. If you are trying to cut cooling costs, we recommend investing in thick, high-quality curtains (especially for east and west-facing windows) and keeping them drawn during the sunniest parts of the day.

3. Upgrade to a Programmable Thermostat

Don’t have a programmable thermostat yet? It’s time to upgrade! A programmable thermostat is an easy, convenient way to not only keep your home comfortable but to reduce your cooling costs too. A programmable thermostat is a thermostat that is — you guessed it — programmable. The user-friendly device will allow you to program your thermostat to switch on or off at your desired temperature whenever you’d like. In doing so, you’ll be able to customize your home’s comfort to fit your schedule, and won’t have to pay to keep your AC running at full speed while you’re not at home.

4. Schedule Professional AC Maintenance

Your air conditioning system is one of the biggest investments you will make for your home, and like all other investments, it needs some TLC here and there to function efficiently. That’s why scheduling professional AC maintenance with a reliable company is so important. At Sansone, our maintenance checkups include a comprehensive inspection and tune-up, which works to ensure your air conditioning system is functioning as efficiently as possible. As a result, your AC won’t have to work as hard to provide the same cooling comfort, meaning a comfy house for you and lowered cooling costs.
