Are you on the hunt for some energy and money-saving tips and tricks this summer? You can do it without giving up on a cool, comfortable house. Take a look at these three hacks you can put into action now.
Hack #1: Change Your HVAC Air Filter
This one seems too simple to make a difference, but a clean filter can greatly impact on your energy and money savings. If you have a clogged filter, your HVAC system will have to work overtime to keep up with demand, which results in a house that’s not as cool and equipment that’s using more energy.
Hack #2: Turn Off Your Lights
Lights not only use electricity, driving up your utility bills, but they put off heat, creating a warmer house that needs more cooling. When you turn off lights when you leave a room, you’re going to cut down on energy use while helping to keep your house cool.
Hack #3: Upgrade Your Thermostat
A smart thermostat can help you reduce costs and help keep your house cool. The technology lets you control your energy use but also gives more flexibility with programming. Setting it to fit your lifestyle means your home is just the right temperature, all the time.
It’s not impossible to stick to a budget, reduce your energy use, and still stay cool this summer. You don’t have to give up your AC just to save money. With some easy hacks, you can reduce your utility bills while still having a comfortable house. The pros at G+S Energy Services have got you covered. Contact them today to learn more.
