Your summer electric bill can be a real eye opener. However, here are some steps that will help you keep it under control.
1. Check your room register settings.Are you air conditioning rooms that are not used? Do you have rooms that are cold when others are comfortable. Change the settings on the registers to help balance the system.
2. Check the system air filter on a monthly basis. You may be surprised many particles are floating around your house. A dirty air filter will make your system work much harder and therefore cost more money.
3. Simply raise the temperature setting on your thermostat. There is no reason to keep your home as cool when no one is home. Consider a programmable thermostat to raise the temperature when you are at work and school. It only takes about 30 minutes to cool your home back to your comfort level.
4. Have your air conditioning system cleaned and check by a professional. There are parts of the system that collect dirt and need to be cleaned by trained technician. In addition, if the coolant is not sufficiently filled, the system will run longer than ideal. Both of these require extra electric to cool your home.
