4 Tips for Saving Energy in Fort Worth This Summer 

Spring is wonderful for a couple reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can open up windows for outdoor air and your utility bill is usually at its lowest. That’s because you’re not turning on your heat or air conditioner. 

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

1. Schedule Seasonal AC Maintenance 

Giving your air conditioning system a yearly tune-up can help it work more efficiently and scale down costs. Changing out your air filter will help keep utility costs low. 

If your HVAC equipment has had better days, spring is a good time to upgrade it. The energy-saving technology in newer cooling systems is a definite plus in keeping your power bill down. 

2. Turn Down Your Thermostat 

There’s a painless way you can save up to 10% on HVAC expenses. Just dial your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours each day. 

Figuring out how to effectively work your thermostat is the best way to lower energy charges in the summer. 

  • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Consider it this way, the less significant the difference between exterior temperatures and inside temperatures, the cheaper your home comfort bill will be. 
  • When you’re not at home, set the thermostat to a much higher temperature or switch it off. There’s no reason to cool an empty house. 

3. Try Other Methods to Cool Your Space

You can do several other approaches to help keep your house comfortable: 

  • Use a ceiling fan—By running a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no reduction in comfort. Have your fan spin counterclockwise in the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This disperses cool air more uniformly when you’re in the room. 
  • Keep blinds shut—Sunlight quickly converts to heat as it passes through windows. Keep your home more comfortable by closing blinds and curtains when you’re not using sunny areas. 

4. Look Into Installing a Smart Thermostat

You’ve left home and suddenly realize you forgot to turn up the thermostat. Then you fret about it the full day! 

Smart thermostats figure out your schedule and move the temp when you’re gone to help you save energy and money. You can also set the temp from anywhere with your phone. 

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