How to Save on AC Energy Costs This Summer

Summers in Arlington, Texas, can be taxing on home air conditioning systems but by employing a few savvy strategies, staying cool in the summertime needn’t lead to higher energy bills. These energy saving tips for your home can help you save money without sacrificing comfort. Metro Express Service is pleased to show you how to combine products and services to further lower cooler expenses.

Seal the Envelope of Your Home

It’s not just heat that can infiltrate your home through cracks and gaps in your home but humid air as well, making it even more challenging to stay comfortable. Weather stripping windows and doors can help keep the hot humid air at bay. Adding insulation to the attic and sealing up leaks in crawl spaces and basements increases your home’s energy efficiency.

Repair Leaky Ducts

Leaky ducts can reduce the energy efficiency of your air conditioning system by as much as 30 percent. As the ductwork for your AC system must be carefully balanced to operate safely and efficiently, it’s best to leave duct sealing in the hands of a capable HVAC technician. A Metro Express Service professional can conduct simple tests to determine if your ductwork is leaking and needs attention.

Tune Up Your AC

Proper maintenance not only helps ensure that your air conditioning system operates at peak energy efficiency but can help prevent a costly AC repair down the line as well. The Department of Energy recommends routine air conditioning service as one of the best ways to keep AC systems running efficiently. Metro Express air conditioning service in Arlington includes energy tune-ups like cleaning filters, adding lubricant to fans and unblocking coils and drains.
