Lower Your Air Conditioning Costs

Keeping your home cool and comfortable in the summer can quickly become a very expensive endeavor. With electricity costs going nowhere but up, homeowners everywhere are increasingly concerned with finding ways to reduce energy usage. But the unfortunate reality is that most homeowners simply don’t know how to keep their cooling costs under control. The good news? Little changes can have major impacts. Just a few easy adjustments can reduce your energy consumption and lower your bills in a big way — all without sacrificing your family’s comfort.

Simple Changes, Big Savings

Something as simple as the right thermostat settings can make a big difference in your overall energy usage. Experts recommend keeping the thermostat set to “auto” rather than “on.” This means the fan is only operating when the temperature requires it, not constantly. You can also save by raising the temperature in your home by just one degree. You’re not likely to notice the change, but your cooling bills will certainly reflect it. For even bigger savings, consider a programmable thermostat and a cooling system that allows for zoning. Program your thermostat to provide optimal cooling only during times when your family is home (and to raise the temperature when you’re at work or school). Use your system’s zoning capability to provide cooling only to those areas of the home that are in use. But significantly cutting your cooling costs requires more than just adjusting your thermostat. Your AC system also requires some professional attention at least once a year if you expect it to operate efficiently. An annual inspection and tune-up will not only lower your cooling bills, but also improve indoor air quality and prolong the life of your heating and cooling equipment.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
