How to Reduce Air Conditioning Costs: 15 Tips for Efficient Air Conditioning

How to Reduce Air Conditioning Costs

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 75% of homes have air conditioners and account for 6% of all electricity produced in the country. And all of that electricity costs homeowners around $29 billion annually, which is a huge chunk of change. So how can you reduce, or eliminate, your reliance on costly central air conditioning?

Everything You Need to Know About Air Conditioning FiltersAir conditioning filters aren’t just glorified sheets of polyester that you slide into your air conditioner every month. On the contrary, air filters are vital components to any HVAC or central air system that ensure your home’s air conditioner runs smoothly and safely — all while reducing your energy bill.

If you’ve ever wondered why you need to purchase multiple air filters each year, you’re not alone. As such a small, replaceable component to air conditioning systems, they’re easy parts to gloss over when performing routine air conditioner maintenance. But that doesn’t mean they should be ignored.

Spring Cleaning: How to Get Your Home & Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Spring has finally arrived! And with it comes warmer temperatures and longer days. But that isn’t the only thing that spring brings.

With a dormant air conditioner, stale air, and melting snow, spring could also mean air conditioner repairs, reduced air quality, and potential water damage if you’re not careful. But by cleaning and inspecting your home and air conditioner, you can keep your home cool all summer long and avoid costly repairs. And considering the fact that summer is a busy time for cooling experts, roofers, and other home improvement services, spring is the perfect season to dive in.
