Installing a programmable thermostat is one of our most effective options for lowering cooling costs. You can set the unit to automatically provide warmer temperatures at night or during the workday, so energy and costs aren’t wasted on unnecessary cooling. Other tips for lowering cooling costs include:
Installing attic insulation: Thicker insulation can prevent warmed air from rising through your roof and out of your home. It also keeps in cool air during warmer months.
Sealing your ducts: Leaky ductwork wastes energy. We can seal ducts and add insulation in exposed areas to maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning.
Using energy-efficient window coverings: Efficient window coverings such as blinds, shades, and special window film can prevent air from escaping through the glass.
Also, look for ENERGY STAR certified equipment. It is designed to strict standards, to operate using less energy, and significantly reduce energy costs.
