Summer months in Charlotte can get pretty hot and humid, causing residents to kick up the AC. Energy bills between June and August can increase noticeably in order to stay comfortable in your own home. Killingsworth doesn't want Charlotte residents paying an arm and a leg in utility bills, so we've comprised a list of 7 simple tips that can help reduce energy costs this summer.
Find a comfortable temperature and keep your AC set at that point, rather than changing the dial often. The more you change the temperature, the more your unit is working to keep up with the changes.
One of the most critical aspects in maintaining an effective air condition system to clean or replace filters on a consistent basis.
Instead, whip up something on the stove or grill. When you're using the oven to cook, it is naturally heating up your kitchen which causes the AC to work harder and consume more energy to keep the space cool.
Direct sunlight into a room can increase the room temperature drastically, causing the AC to kick on more frequently to keep the space cool. Use blinds, curtains, or drapes to block direct sunlight during the day.
Unplug appliances and devices when not in use. Especially when you're away from home during the day or if you go on vacation. It also helps to keep the thermostat turned off when you and your family are away from home.
Contact your local HVAC company to schedule maintenance at least twice a year. This will ensure that your heating and cooling system is working the ways it's supposed and saving you money!
