Are you looking for ways to increase your energy efficiency and decrease your utility bills this summer? You’ve come to the right place. Here are a few summer energy saving tips that might surprise you:
This one is not something most of us even think of when it comes to energy savings. Keeping the track clean helps keep the seal intact. When there is a lot of dirt, debris, and pet hair on the track it can create gaps and those gaps are where your cool air is getting out and the hot summer air is getting in.
Fans that pull air up toward the ceiling help to circulate warm air better in the winter, which is why you want your ceiling fans to blow air down into the room in the summer.
Air that is blown down creates a wind chill affect when it blows on you, creating a cooling affect. In the summer make sure your fans are rotating in a counter-clockwise direction (as you look up at them) to get the most cooling.
Humid air holds heat more effectively than dry air, and reversely, less humid air is easier to cool. If your house is a little too humid this summer your energy bills will show it. A dehumidifier can lower your energy bills by adjusting the relative humidity in your home to levels that make your air conditioner work more effectively, and make it work less. Less air conditioning means lower utility bills.
There are a lot of ways you can lower your energy use and your utility bills. For more ideas on how you can increase the energy efficiency of your home this summer, and year round, contact the experts at All City Heat and Air by calling 704-545-2000.
