What if you could lower your air conditioner bill today?
When you live in Florida, the air conditioner electricity bill is always annoying. And it only gets worse when the Sunshine State begins to heat up over the summer.
Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to lower your bill. Keep reading to discover what the best methods are!
Get New Windows
When you want to lower your air conditioner electricity bill, you’re probably focusing on the air conditioner unit. But one of the best things you can do for your bill is to get some new windows!
If you have old windows, now is the perfect time to replace them with energy-efficient windows. Such windows can reduce the amount of UV and infrared light that comes in, helping to keep the temperature down.
As an added bonus, energy-efficient windows also help retain heat during the winter. That means you can enjoy lower bills all year round!
Use a Programmable Thermostat
If your AC electricity bill is high, chances are it comes from using the air conditioner too often. While you can always manually turn it off and back on, we recommend using a programmable thermostat instead.
Such a thermostat lets you program special settings (such as turning the air off while you’re at work and turning it back on shortly before you get home). And a good thermostat can “learn” over time and make further recommendations to help you lower your bill.
And if you’re worried about the thermostat being confusing, remember that you can always call your local air conditioning professionals to help you program it!
Replace Your HVAC Filters
Be honest: when is the last time you actually changed your HVAC filters?
These filters help protect the health of your air conditioner and the air quality throughout your house. Nonetheless, most homeowners don’t change these filters nearly as often as they should.
Over time, these filters get clogged with all of the dust, dirt, and debris they are protecting you from. Changing the filters once every month or two is a great way to keep things clean and keep your bill low.
Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance
Air conditioners are designed to last a good, long time. But that’s only if homeowners are performing regular maintenance on these units!
It’s good to inspect your HVAC system at least twice a month (we recommend shortly before summer and shortly before winter). Such regular maintenance will help you detect small problems before they turn into major problems.
If you don’t feel comfortable inspecting the HVAC on your own, don’t hesitate to contact your local HVAC professionals.
