How to Keep It Cool And Reduce Utility Bills


To say that trying to stay on top of your utility bills is frustrating can be a huge understatement. It seems your air conditioner is constantly running, drowning you in high energy costs and leaving you struggling to stay afloat. While we can never make those utility bills completely disappear, Masters Heating & Cooling is here to offer you a life preserver to help you keep your head above water. Check out the following advice on reducing utility costs and limiting wear and tear on your system.

Stay on schedule with regular ac maintenance and tune-ups. Keeping your cooling and heating system serviced and running efficiently is the top way to reduce those utility bills and extend the life of your system. Changing your air filters on a regular basis is another easy way to care for your system; it produces better airflow and air quality. Here are a few other energy-saving tips:

  • Fan it. Whether it is ceiling fans or floor fans, it’s important to circulate air in your home. Fans also help evaporate sweat, which allows our bodies to cool.
  • Don’t bake or cook on the stove. If you do use the oven, turn on the kitchen exhaust, and use the bathroom exhaust fan after a hot shower. This helps to remove heat and humidity at the source.
  • Seal your house and keep that valuable cooled air from escaping through gaps and cracks near windows and doors.
  • If you have a programmable thermostat, use it. If not, make sure you turn up your thermostat when you are leaving.
  • Close curtains and blinds during the brightest, hottest parts of the day. This keeps the concentrated heat windows produce from building up.
  • Identify problem rooms and resist the urge to crank up the A/C trying to make these uncomfortable rooms comfortable.

These are but a few energy-saving measures you can try that will help reduce utility and repair costs. Call Masters today for more information or to schedule system maintenance.
