As the temperature rises, so do our energy bills.
Don’t want to deal with sky-high A/C costs this summer? Here’s how to cut back:
- Buy a smart thermostat. These help you pre-program temperatures and save on energy when you’re not in the home.
- Block air leaks. If air is getting out around your windows, doors or attic, it means higher A/C usage (and higher energy bills).
- Clean your A/C system. Clear away debris from the unit, dust off intake vents and replace your filters regularly.
Have quality drapes and blinds in place, too. This will keep sunlight from heating up your home, increasing your need for A/C.
