4 Tips for Saving Energy in Dallas This Summer 

Spring is beautiful for a couple reasons: flowers start to bloom, you can crack windows for fresh air and your energy bill is generally at its lowest. That’s because you’re not turning to your heat or air. 

But as mercury begins to increase, so do your energy charges. Here are some tips for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping bills less expensive. 

1. Call for Annual AC Maintenance 

Giving your AC system a seasonal maintenance appointment can help it operate more efficiently and lower costs. Replacing your air filter will help keep energy costs low. 

If your cooling equipment has experienced better days, spring is an excellent time to upgrade it. The energy-saving technology in updated air conditioning systems is a big benefit for keeping your power charges down. 

2. Turn to Your Thermostat 

There’s an easy way you can save up to 10% on HVAC bills. Just dial your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours during the day. 

Learning how to efficiently work your thermostat is the best way to lower energy bills in the summer. 

  • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Think of it this way, the lower the difference between outside temperatures and indoor temperatures, the lower your home comfort expense will be. 
  • When you’re out, set the thermostat to a much higher temperature or switch it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty residence. 

3. Try Other Ways to Cool Your Home

You can do a couple other approaches to help keep your home at the right temperature: 

  • Use a ceiling fan—By turning on a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no decrease in comfort. Have your fan move counterclockwise in the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This disperses cool air more evenly when you’re in the room. 
  • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly transforms into heat as it comes through windows. Keep your home cooler by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not staying in sunny spaces. 

4. Look Into Buying a Smart Thermostat

You’re out and about and abruptly realize you failed to turn up the thermostat. Then you worry about it the whole day! 

Smart thermostats pick up on your habits and adjust the temp when you’re out to help you save money. You can also set the temp from anywhere with your phone. 

These professional suggestions will all help keep summer energy charges economical. If you think it’s time to improve your thermostat or need AC installation online. We’ll help you choose the best fit for your space. And as usual, all our services are protected by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
