The season is about to change to the warmer side here in Australia and that means that is almost time to turn on the Air Conditioning. Turning on your AC means that you will have to start paying more on your electric bill as the season goes on. Alltech Air Conditioning wants to help you save money this spring and summer with some helpful tips.
Don’t keep air so low
Experts say that if you keep your inside temperature at about 78 degrees, you can save 5% – 15% on your air conditioning bills. This might seem on the warm side but when you are coming in from the hot air outside, it will feel quite nice as you walk into your home.
A great way to save money is to use a fan to circulate the air in your home. Putting the fans on the upper level of your home and opening the windows on the lower level can help cool the air. You can also try putting a fan in the window and face it outside so that you can move the hot air out and get cold air in.
Don’t use the oven
When you use the oven or the stove, you are adding hot air into your cooled home. If it is at all possible, use the microwave or make dishes that do not require cooking. If you absolutely need to cook something wait until the evening so that temperatures are cooler.
The best way to save money is to keep your AC unit maintained and replace it when it is needed. That is where Alltech Air Conditioning comes in. We want to help you keep your energy bills low. Call us today to see how we can help.
