4 Ways To Lower Your AC Costs This Summer

Summer is rapidly approaching, and many homeowners in Winnipeg are preparing to turn on their air conditioning units to keep cool during the warmer temperatures. However, frequent AC use can result in high energy bills, which quickly add up. Fortunately, the team at Home Service Plus has four tips to help you lower your AC costs this summer. Read on, then contact us for your next AC service.


Use a Programmable Thermostat

One of the easiest ways to save money on air conditioning is to use a programmable thermostat. These thermostats can be programmed to adjust your home's temperature automatically, so you're not using air conditioning when you don't need it. For example, you can program your AC to turn off during the day while you're at work and then turn on an hour before you get home.


Maintain Your AC Unit Regularly

Regular AC maintenance can help it run more efficiently, reducing the energy needed to cool your house. The experts at Home Service Plus can change the air filters, vacuum dust from the coils, and check the refrigerant levels.


Use Ceiling Fans When Possible

If your home has ceiling fans, consider using them instead of your air conditioner whenever possible. Ceiling fans circulate the air in your home, making it feel cooler without you having to adjust the thermostat. Plus, you can raise the temperature a few degrees and still feel comfortable with the help of fans.


Keep Intense Sunlight Out

The sun's rays can quickly heat your home, causing your AC to work harder. Blocking out the sun's rays with shades, curtains, or blinds can help to prevent this. We also suggest planting trees or shrubs to provide natural shade.

By following these tips, you can reduce your air conditioning costs while keeping your home cool and comfortable all summer. For all your AC needs, contact Home Service Plus in Winnipeg today.
