Simple Ways to Reduce Your Energy Bill

Reducing your energy bill doesn’t mean sacrificing indoor comfort. Many factors play a role in your monthly energy usage, ranging from how you use your thermostat to the efficiency of your air conditioner. Keep reading to discover a few simple ways to reduce your energy bill for greater comfort and savings in Orlando.

Maintain Your Air Conditioner

Air conditioning maintenance is one of the first steps you can take to lower your energy bill. Your air conditioner can lose up to 15% efficiency for each year it is not serviced. Schedule an annual AC tune-up with a qualified HVAC technician to ensure your air conditioner is not running with worn or dirty parts. Also make sure to change your HVAC filter regularly to reduce dust and improve air flow.

Use Your Thermostat Wisely

Your thermostat is a powerful tool that allows you to customize both indoor comfort and energy expenditure. Set the temperature cooler while you are home, but turn off your HVAC system during the times that your home is not occupied. Using your air conditioner to maintain cooler temperatures only when you are present can add up to significant energy savings. If you have an older thermostat that is difficult to set, consider replacing it with a digital programmable model to increase your control over the indoor temperature.

Take Advantage of Natural Energy

The sun and wind can provide free heating and cooling for your home. On breezy days, keep windows open to allow fresh air to cool your home naturally. Make use of sunlight to heat rooms on cooler days and provide free indoor lighting. However, keep in mind that too much sun on hot days can put excess strain on your air conditioner. Utilize shades and awnings to reduce solar heating and improve your air conditioner’s efficiency during hot summer days.

There are many ways to reduce energy usage around your home without affecting your quality of life. For more tips and tricks to help you save on your utility bills, contact your Orlando home AC service for personalized advice.
