4 Tips for Saving Energy in Rochester This Summer 

Spring is nice for a couple reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can open windows for crisp air and your energy bill is usually at its lowest. That’s because you’re not utilizing your furnace or cooling.

But as temperatures begin to climb, so do your energy costs. Here are a few suggestions for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping payments down.

1. Call for Seasonal AC Maintenance

Giving your cooling system an annual maintenance visit can help it run more efficiently and lower costs. Replacing your air filter will help keep energy bills down.

If your cooling equipment has had better days, spring is a great time to upgrade it. The energy-saving features in newer cooling systems is a big advantage for keeping your electricity charges down.

2. Start with Your Thermostat

There’s an easy way you can save up to 10% on HVAC bills. Just turn your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours each day.

Learning how to effectively work your thermostat is the smartest way to reduce energy expenses in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Consider it this way, the less significant the difference between outdoor temperatures and indoor temperatures, the less expensive your home comfort expense will be.
    • When you’re not at home, set the thermostat to a significantly higher temperature or switch it off. It doesn’t make sense to cool an empty residence.

3. Try Other Approaches to Cool Your Space

You can turn to several other methods to help keep your home comfortable:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By running a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no decrease in comfort. Have your fan move counterclockwise when it’s warm out, which drives cool air upward. This distributes cool air more uniformly when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly converts to heat as it moves through windows. Keep your residence more comfortable by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not staying in sunny spaces.

4. Look Into Installing a Smart Thermostat

You’re out and about and suddenly realize you forgot to turn up the thermostat. Then you think about it the entire day!

Smart thermostats pick up on your routine and change the temp when you’re out to help you save on your bills. You can also change the temp from anywhere with your phone.

These expert ideas will all help keep summer energy bills economical. If you conclude it’s time to modernize your thermostat or need AC installation online. We’ll help you figure out the right fit for your house. And as usual, all our services are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
