As The Temperature Goes Up, Keep Your Cooling Costs Down

July 16, 2019 | Blog

Do you want more money in your pocket this summer? Don’t get stuck with an AC that blows your money away. While the summer heats up, keep your utility costs as low as possible with our energy saving tips. You’ll stay cool and comfortable, and will have more money to spend on the summer activities that matter most.

Stop Cooling the Entire Neighborhood

Unless you find yourself in a brand new house, it’s likely that the cold air from your AC is leaking outside through unsealed cracks, doors and windows, or through your poorly insulated attic.

The best thing to do is to audit your home. A professional home energy consultation can tell you exactly where you’re wasting money. At Air Tech, any of our Trane Comfort Specialists can sweep your home and give you the best recommendation on making your home more energy efficient.

If you’re more into DIY, simply stand outside of your home and run your hand along your doors and windows. If you can feel cold air escaping, just caulk around any leaking windows and add insulation around your doors.

Don’t Be Afraid to Use a Fan

You don’t always have to dial down the thermostat to feel cooler. Fans help circulate the cooled air, and can make a room feel up to ten degrees cooler. Fans also use 90% less energy than your AC system, so your wallet will thank you.

Close Curtains and Blinds

Allowing the sun’s hot rays into your home through the windows will heat up your house and your family. During midday, when the temperature is highest, close your curtains and blinds to keep out the sun. Window dressings also help insulate your windows, allowing you to save the most on your energy costs.

Upgrade Your Unit

The best way to ensure you’re saving as much as possible on your cooling costs is to ensure your unit is functioning properly. Schedule bi-annual maintenance with AC professionals who can repair any malfunctioning parts, such as those at Air Tech of Humble.

If your current unit is ten years old or older, you are not getting the maximum energy efficiency. Newer units, like those from Trane, have energy ratings of up to 20 SEER, and can provide you with maximum comfort and savings.
