With summer almost here, it is time to get that AC turned on! One big concern many homeowners have during the summer months is how to keep their home energy efficient and keep your utility bills low. It may seem impossible with rising heat, however, there are some things you can do to ensure your home stays cool while not breaking the bank. The Kool My Air, Inc. team have compiled a list of things you can do for a more energy efficient home.
Ways To Increase Efficiency
- Check Your Insulation – Quality insulation in a home can help your property retain cool air during the summer time and prevent the outside weather from entering your home. You can check this by going to your attic and looking at your roof structure.
- Close Your Blinds – During the winter, having your blinds open can naturally warm your home. However, during the summer, you want your home to be cool. Control how natural light and UV rays affect your home by closing your blinds.
- Use Your Thermostat – Set your thermostat at a good average temperature so that the system is not overworking. If you have a programmable thermostat, you can set it to be only on and off at certain times of the day, reducing the use of energy when no one is home.
- Update your Home Air Conditioner – One final way you can improve your energy efficiency is to replace your old system with a new one designed to be more energy efficient. Newer models can even tell you their efficiency rating. If you choose this option, speak with your local heating and air conditioning company to get the best model and size for your home.
