Do you dread getting energy bills in the summer? It can be frustrating to feel like you’re doing everything you can but find you’re still paying more than you want to for energy.
If this is you, or if you just love saving as much as possible, here are a few easy, unexpected ways to save money this summer.
Check Seals on Your Windows and Doors
Your parents probably yelled at you about cooling off the outdoors when you left a door open in the summer as child. However, you could close all your doors and windows and still leak that nice, cool air outside.
Check your doors and windows for air leaks. Then, seal them with caulk or with a sealing kit from your local hardware store.
Find Leaks in Your Ductwork
Similarly, your ducts could be leaking your cold air outside before it ever gets to you. If you feel like you aren’t seeing the results you should from running your AC, give us a call. We’ll evaluate your ductwork and see what we find. If there are major cracks or holes in your system, we’ll get them filled for you fast.
Or if we find that they are sealed properly but you AC isn’t reaching you because they could use a good clean or your filter needs to be replace, we can handle your duct cleaning needs, too!
Turn the Thermostat Up
Turn your thermostat up a degree. If no one complains after 24 hours, turn it up again. Keep doing this until the people in your house actually start getting hot. You could save a lot just by making your house a little warmer.
