While some areas may be looking at the next month as a time that they will see some reprieve from the high temps that summer brings, here in the Las Vegas Valley, we will continue to see high temperatures clear into October. There are several ways you can save money on keeping your home cool this summer. Hal Mechanical is here to share some tips that can help you save big until the summer temperatures start to subside.
Get a Stationary or Ceiling Fan
Have you ever spent time in a room that has some sort of fan blowing and circulating the air? It can make a huge difference in the overall feel of the space. When you are looking for ways to turn the temperature in your home up a bit, putting some sort of fan in the room is the way to go. This can be done with stationary fans or ceiling fans. It will cost you a fraction of the price it does to turn down the temperature in your home, and you will still feel comfortable while using it.
Keep Air Conditioner Maintenance Schedule
When your AC system isn’t running efficiently, you will end up paying for it. You can install a programmable thermostat and buy the most energy efficient AC system on the market all you want, but if you aren’t caring for this equipment properly, you will likely see no savings on your energy costs during the summer. You should be scheduling professional maintenance for your entire system every single year to keep your system as energy efficient as possible.
