Summer Thermostat Tips for More Efficient Cooling
Thursday, July 07, 2016

When summer heats up, most people expect their energy bills to increase drastically on account of the constant cooling, but there may be a few thrifty ways you can cut down costs this summer.

Here are some ways to use your thermostat that can help your air conditioner work more efficiently:

Turn Your Thermostat Up

When the temperature heats up, most people instinctively turn their thermostat down to get some instant relief. While it’s comfortable in the short run, this is a major drain on your system. Instead, you should find the highest setting that still provides comfort.

This method prevents your cooling system from working too hard, saving you significant green during the hottest months of the year in Charlotte NC.

Set Your Thermostat Lower When You Leave

When there’s no one in your home, there’s no reason for it to be comfortable. Turning your cooling system down or even off while you’re gone can save you on your summer bills. If you’re forgetful, look into a buying a thermostat that you can control remotely.

Turn to Fans and Open Windows for Help

When it cools down at night, take advantage by opening the windows to cool your home down without the use of your air conditioner. Using fans throughout your house can also make a significant difference when the temperature soars.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
