We are moving steadily out of the summer season, which means that your air conditioner has already done the bulk of the work that it will have to for the year. That also means that you’ve undoubtedly paid a few electric bills overlapping with your AC use. Were you unhappy with what you when doing so?
There are a number of ways that you can enjoy a more efficient cooling experience without replacing your entire air conditioning system. In fact, the following suggestions can help you to enjoy more efficient heating, as well. If you are serious about cooling your home affordably, keep this information in mind.
Upgrade Old Thermostats
One of the most important pieces of any air conditioning — or heating — system is the thermostat. After all, it is your thermostat that allows you to regulate the operation of your HVAC system to begin with. If you are using an old, outdated thermostat that you need to slide or dial into a temperature, then you are just not going to enjoy the level of efficiency that you deserve. Upgrading these thermostats to even a basic digital model, though we suggest programmable devices, can help you to set temperatures more accurately and to cut down on your bills.
Use Thermal Curtains
During the summer, simply blocking out the light from your home can really help you to cut down on daytime heat gain. Using efficient curtains designed to not only block the sun but to limit heat transfer is one of the simplest ways in which to cut down on energy costs. If you are not too worried about the look of these curtains, you can even make your own thermal barriers.
You didn’t really expect us to leave this off of the list, did you?
