During the warmer months, keeping a low utility bill can be a challenge for many throughout the Tri-state area. A lot of homeowners find themselves using electricity and their air conditioning units more. With that in mind, it can get quite costly. Luckily, by regularly maintaining your system and implementing more efficient practices, costs can be reduced significantly.
Let’s take a look at some ways to increase efficiency throughout the season:
In the Northeast region, summer nights can get quite cool. With that said, you can save a lot on your monthly bills by taking advantage of the breeze and opening a window or two in the evening. Really, it is a great way to get some fresh air circulating into the home while cooling down the space. Plus, it can increase the indoor air quality too, all while saving you money! Just be sure to close them early in the morning as the temperatures begin to rise again.
Believe it or not, one area that consumes a significant amount of energy is any plugged-in electronics, power strips, and appliances. In fact, when not in use, unplugging small appliances such as the microwave, toaster, and coffee maker can make a difference. Also, other items not in use, such as plug-in fans, lights, or charging cords, are best to keep unplugged as much as possible.
From your local Camden County heating and AC company, here’s some important information to know about getting your air conditioning and even heating systems checked.
