It was a frigid winter here in Cincinnati. Are you prepared for the heat? Is your AC? Cooling your home this summer can add a significant amount to your electric bill, but you can take these 5 steps to help reduce your bill whether you have window units or central air.
- If using a unit air conditioner, make sure it is the right size. If it is too small, it will work harder to cool your space, and if it is too large, it will use more power than needed.
- Have regular maintenance performed on your air conditioner to help it run more efficiently. An HVAC professional can help save you money by making any necessary repairs at the beginning of the season.
- Temperature control, temperature control, temperature control. Don’t lower the temperature when you’re not home!
- Key essentials to the home: ceiling fans and insulation! Fans circulate the cool air and insulation prevents cold air leaks.
