7 Best Ways to Cut Your Use of A/C

7 Best Ways to Cut Your Use of A/C

  1. Screen Your Windows

If you haven’t already, put a mesh screen over your windows. They help absorb a lot of the heat before it gets into your house. Plus, they keep the insects away. You can also use a plastic film on your windows to further decrease the heat. Focus on the windows facing east and west where the sun is usually the strongest.

  1. Shade Your A/C

You can either move your outdoor a/c unit to a shaded area or plant some trees around it. The more shaded your a/c unit is, the less energy it will need to use to keep cool. Stop by your local nursery and buy some inexpensive shrubs and trees.

  1. Raise the Temperature at Night

Just like in the winter, you should adjust the temperature before you go to bed at night. You can use a Wi-Fi thermostat or a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature automatically.

  1. Unplug Electronics

Any and all electronics produce heat. Unplug whatever you’re not using. This includes phone and computer chargers, which still use electricity even if your device isn’t plugged in. You’ll also save on your electricity bills.

  1. Avoid Using the Stove and Oven

Try sticking to cooler meals such as sandwiches and salads. If you have to use the oven or the stove, do it at night when it’s cooler. You should also turn on the kitchen exhaust to help remove some of the hot air.

  1. Use Fans

Fans help circulate air and evaporate humidity and heat. Put them in areas that your air conditioning tends to miss so the entire house will cool down faster. The breeze will also help you feel more comfortable without having to jack up the a/c.

  1. Service Your A/C

The best way to save money on your air conditioning bills is to have your a/c unit inspected annually. Old, worn down a/c units tend to waste a lot of energy. A proper inspection will make sure that your unit is functioning properly.
