We are into the new year full swing, and that means our spending might be trying to recover from the holidays. Whether it was the presents under the tree or the trip your family took, everything seems to come with an added cost.
In the midst of all the craziness, your AC unit isn’t something to completely ignore. By properly regulating your home’s heating and air functions, you’ll be able to lower your energy bill just in time for those New Year’s Resolutions.
Need some tips on how to save? Here are a few ways you can lower your home’s energy costs.
Change your air filters
When filters have gone unnoticed, particles begin to build up and create a blockage for clean air to pass through. Not only is this unhealthy for your lungs, but your unit will have to work twice as hard to run.
Get a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are the next generation of cooling and heating. Since they offer accessibility through WIFI connectivity, you’re now able to have more control over your home’s climate. More guidance means more savings!
Turn off your ceiling fan
When you leave your house, go ahead and turn off all your ceiling fans. A ceiling fan just circulates air in your home, so it does not good – other than wasting energy – to leave them on in rooms you’re not using at the moment.
Insulate your attic
Attics are prone to air leaks. It’s important to professionally insulate the walls of your home to better maintain air flow.
Repair your AC
If you find yourself having to tend to your unit on a regular basis, it might be time to replace your ac completely.
