Summer is here, which means that the heat has also arrived. The hot summer weather in Denver doesn’t have to lead to a huge increase in your electrical bills. There are a variety of ways you can save money on your AC bill this summer while still enjoying a cool temperature in your home.
1. Schedule a Tune-Up for Your AC Unit
Scheduling a tune-up for your AC system can help it to work more efficiently. When your unit is able to work efficiently, it will use less electricity to cool your house. This can lead to lower energy bills. When you schedule a tune-up for your air conditioner, your technician will also be able to point out any potential problems and recommend solutions. This can help you to avoid costly repairs in the future. To schedule a tune-up, contact us today.
2. Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can make a big difference in your electrical bills each month. With a programmable thermostat, you can increase the temperature in your house during the times you’re not there. Then, when you’ll be home again, you can program the thermostat to decrease the temperature. This will allow you to stay cool during the times you’re at home, but it won’t waste electricity when you’re away.
3. Keep Your Curtains or Blinds Closed
The hot rays from the sun can really heat up your residence. Prevent them from getting in by keeping your curtains and blinds closed during the heat of the day. This will prevent your home from getting too warm. Your AC unit won’t need to work as hard to cool down your house, which will help you to save some money on your AC bills.
