4 Tips for Saving Energy in San Antonio This Summer 

Spring is beautiful for many reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can crack windows for fresh air and your energy bill is commonly at its most economical. That’s because you’re not using your heater or cooling.

But as temperatures begin to climb, so do your energy costs. Here are a couple of ideas for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping costs low.

1. Call for Annual AC Maintenance

Giving your cooling system a yearly maintenance visit can help it operate more efficiently and trim costs. Changing out your air filter will help keep utility bills low.

If your cooling equipment has had better days, spring is a smart time to upgrade it. The energy-saving options in updated AC systems is a huge plus in keeping your power charges down.

2. Turn Down Your Thermostat

There’s an easy way you can save up to 10% on heating and cooling expenses. Just dial your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours each day.

Focusing on how to expertly work your thermostat is the smartest way to cut down on energy bills in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re in the house. Think of it this way, the smaller the difference between exterior temperatures and inside temperatures, the smaller your energy bill will be.
    • When you’re away, set the thermostat to a significantly higher temperature or switch it off. There’s no reason to cool an empty house.

3. Take Advantage of Other Methods to Cool Your House

You can turn to a few other approaches to help keep your home cool:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By using a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no loss in comfort. Have your fan turn counterclockwise during the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This moves cool air more equally when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly transforms into heat as it comes through windows. Keep your residence comfortable by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not using sunny areas.

4. Look Into Using a Smart Thermostat

You’re out of the house and suddenly realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you fret about it the full day!

Smart thermostats learn your habits and change the temp when you’re out and about to help you save on your bills. You can also change the temperature from anywhere with your phone.

These pro suggestions will all help keep summer energy bills low. If you decide it’s time to improve your thermostat or need AC installation online. We’ll help you figure out the best solution for your space. And like always, all our services are endorsed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
