We’re in the time of year now where your air conditioner may already be an afterthought. However, you may be taking stock of how high your energy bills were over the summer. If you are, you may be trying to figure out how to lower them when the heat gets turned back up outside. By going green when it comes to your AC, you’ll not only be helping the environment, you’ll also be helping keep money in your bank account. Metro Express Service would like to share with you some tips that may help reduce your cooling bills next summer.
Sizing a New System
If the time has come to switch out your old air conditioner for a new one, have an Arlington technician help to make sure you get the right size. If you’re going green, you’ll want to make sure that your new unit is as energy efficient as possible. If the system is too large for your home, for example, your inside air will feel clammy because it won’t do a good enough job of dehumidifying the air. However, if it is too small, it will have to work too hard to make you comfortable. This will not only waste energy and cause your bills to spike, it will also reduce the lifespan of the unit.
Keep Cool While Staying Energy-Smart
Whether you have a new system or you’re going to count on your old one to get through another summer, set the thermostat to the highest temperature possible that still keeps you comfortable. The less of a difference between the outside air and your inside air, the lower your bills will be and the more energy you will save.
