You’re used to higher AC bills during the Florida summer. Have you noticed, though, that when the kids go back to school, you get to spend a little less on the AC? When that first day of school rolls around again, don’t forget to adjust your thermostat, so you don’t end up paying to cool an empty house.
Make Adjustments for Efficient Cooling
During the summer, the kids are at home. Unless you send them to day camp all summer, there will be days they lounge around the house. Great, they deserve a break. Unfortunately, your HVAC system does not get a break when someone is at home all day. Instead of turning the AC up and letting the house heat up a few degrees, you keep the house cooler all day in the summer because your kids deserve to be comfortable.
When back to school season rolls around, adjust that thermostat setting. Now that you’re off to work and the kids are off to school, you can change your AC settings, so you’re not cooling an empty house.
Seek Other Ways to Save
If you don’t see a change in your electricity bills, don’t worry. Changing your thermostat settings is but one way to save money via your HVAC system. All Year Cooling offers coupons on services that will keep your HVAC system maintained and running well. When your HVAC system is in good repair, it runs at peak efficiency. If you let maintenance slide, your bills will start to creep up.
Maintenance of your HVAC system is an important step toward saving on energy bills. You can pour money into your HVAC system, cooling the house unnecessarily, or you can save as much as possible by paying attention to thermostat settings. Never forget maintenance tasks such as changing filters, and your HVAC system will run reliably and efficiently.
