What do you know about energy services and keeping your home cool this summer? We’re halfway through spring and heading quickly toward summer. While most of us love the warmer weather and sunshine for outside activities, in our homes we want to crank up the AC and cool it down.
But, wait a minute, exactly how cool should it be? According to the EPA, the most energy efficient indoor temperature is 78˚ F. Really? Yes, really.
Not everyone is going to find that 78-degree temperature comfortable. However, it is important to remember that for every degree lower you set your thermostat, energy usage – and consequently energy bills - will increase by 3%.
So, how to find the perfect compromise?
If your HVAC system isn’t keeping up with your heating/cooling needs, perhaps it isn’t the system. Leaky or dirty ducts, dirty filters, air leaks, or problems with the outdoor unit all contribute to an inefficient system.
