Air conditioning your home makes up approximately 44% of your monthly utility bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Here’s some ideas on how to reduce those costs during the summer time:
1) Plant leafy trees that will grow at least 15 feet around your home’s exterior to stop the sun from reaching inside. If the trees or shrubs shade your air conditioner, you could boost your AC’s efficiency by up to 10%.
2) Installing solar screens or mesh-like window screens can result in intercepting up to 70 % of solar energy before it gets into your house
3) Lower your air conditioners thermostat setting to 78 degrees Fahrenheit when you’re at home. But let that number rise to a warmer temperature at night or when you’re away from home. This trick will save you 5-15% percent on your air-conditioning bills.
4) Set you AC fan speed on high, except on very humid days where you should set the speed on low. The slower air movement through the air-condition unit removes moisture from the air and improves comfort in your home.
5) Use fans to circulate air inside the house while you are at home.
6) Skip the stove-top boiling and oven baking; summer is for grilling and keeping the kitchen cool!
7) Make sure your AC unit is running efficiently by keeping the filter clean to allow for good air movement and keep the unit level so the condensation drains properly
8) Replace your older air conditioner with a newer unit and you could cut your energy costs in half.
9) Call Family Air to for an air conditioner check and make sure everything is running properly!

Many people don’t realize the importance of maintaining a clean filter in there heater and ac units. Once your filter becomes clogged it lowers the air flow that you feel throughout your home. It as well makes your system work harder to maintain the temperature that is most comfortable for you. When your system has to work harder, that means your electric bill rises. There have been cases where a filter can get so clogged the system malfunctions and starts a house fire. So why not take the extra time to change your filter once a month. We recommend if you have multiple indoor pets to check it twice a week and give it a shake outside. You will notice you have better air flow and a more efficient working system. If you have any questions give Family Air LLC a call where “Your Comfort Is Our Responsibility”.
