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.

Needed an estimate on a new heat pump for an older home. I loved this company! They were completely professional and gave a very competitive estimate. They didn't offer the brand name I was looking for so I elected to go with another company for the work, but I would highly recommend these guys. They were happy to educate me about the questions I should be asking service providers, and even when I told them I would be going with another company, they still gave me a list of questions to ask the vendor. If I didn't demand Trane, I would have happily let this company perform the work. Just a great company.
