Tips on Keeping Your Home Cooler During the Summer by Central Carolina Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical

As we have said in earlier post, summer can wreak havoc on electric bills as AC units have to work harder and run longer to keep your home and even temperature. There are many things you can do to help keep your system working well and keep your home cooler. You can read our previous tips here.

Here are a few more tips for you to stay cooler and safe money on your bill:

  •  A ceiling fan will allow you to raise the thermostat setting about 4°F with no reduction in comfort
  • Install High-Reflectivity films on East and West facing windows to reflect additional heat gain
  • Keep lamps and electrical appliances (like TVs) away from your thermostat as their heat can cause your AC unit to run longer than necessary
  •  Using a crock pot to cook will cut down on heat distribution from the oven or stove
  • Add caulk or weatherstripping to seal air leaks around leaky doors and windows to keep cold air in and warm air out!
