4 Ways to Save Money on Air Conditioning This Summer

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

In summer, it can be tempting to crank up your air conditioning to cool your home, but this can drive up your electricity bill significantly. While it’s not always possible to eliminate air conditioning expenses, you can reduce your cooling costs by taking a few precautions.

Air Conditioning This Summer

Air condition service contractor Modern Air Solutions lists four ways to save money on air conditioning.

1. Properly Sealed Windows & Doors

Many homeowners lose valuable conditioned air through leaky windows and doors. Going outside and running your hand over doors and windows is an easy method to check for air leaks. If you notice a draft, make sure your windows and doors are completely closed and that any gaps are freshly caulked.

2. Proper Thermostat Placement

If your thermostat is on an outside wall or near a window, it may register an inaccurate reading and cause your air conditioner to run more frequently. Repositioning your thermostat will require the services of an HVAC technician, but it may be worth the call to save money on air conditioning every year. This could also be an excellent time to upgrade to a smart thermostat, which will adjust your temperature automatically.

3. Solar Panels

Solar panels are an excellent option if you rely heavily on air conditioning. They can help you reduce your utility bills since the panels will allow you to use solar energy for powering your home. The cost of solar panels varies, depending on whether you’re going to buy or lease them. While solar requires a significant upfront cost, it can be worth it in the long run.

4. Regular AC Maintenance

Regularly inspect your air conditioning unit and don’t put off replacement when needed. Simply keeping your air conditioner’s filter clean and clearing any obstructions around the unit can save you 5-15% on energy costs. Your air conditioner will also work more efficiently and save you money on recurring air conditioner repair. If your unit is more than 10 years old, it may be time to replace it. This is a considerable expense but can save you a lot of money and headaches over time.
