Learn the Most Common Money-Saving Tips for the Summer

Hot weather in Florida can easily cost you a ton of money on your energy bills. When you want to stay cool and cut back on your air conditioning costs, there are certain steps you can take. Keep the following money-saving tips in mind during the cooling season in Martin, Palm Beach, and Indian River counties.

Replace the Air Filter

Running your air conditioner with a dirty air filter isn’t just bad for your indoor air quality. A dirty air filter also forces your AC to run more often than it should and work harder to keep your home cool. You should replace your current air filter with a clean one on a regular basis while it’s hot out. This might mean checking and changing your air filter every few months or on a monthly basis if you have pets or if your air filter tends to get dirty quickly.

Get a Programmable Thermostat

You can save significant money on your AC bills just by raising the thermostat a few degrees or more. If you prefer your current setting for a comfortable environment, consider raising the thermostat at certain times only, such as when you leave your house for work. Having a programmable thermostat makes it easier to have your indoor temperature setting automatically adjusted at certain times.

Clean the Outside Unit

The coils and fins on your outdoor unit can become dusty or dirty, which can make it harder for your AC to cool your home efficiently. You can cut off power to the unit, then spray it with a hose to clean the coils. To clean the fins, you can gently brush them off to remove soil, dust, and other debris. Clearing away vegetation from around the unit helps ensure adequate airflow for more cost-effective cooling all season long.
