4 Tips For Real Energy Savings

Did you know that heating and cooling make up half the energy usage of a typical family? With utility costs on the rise nationwide, it’s no surprise that many homeowners are turning up their air conditioning units in hopes of cutting energy spend. And while it’s great to raise the temperature when you aren’t home, plenty of us are looking for additional ways to save. Here are four tips for saving money and energy around your Florida home:

  • 1. Change Filters More Often

Changing the air filter regularly impacts energy consumption for the better. Not only do dirty filters force the AC to work harder to achieve the same results, but they also affect the quality of air your family is breathing.

  • 2. Install a Programmable Thermostat

Whether you use a programmable thermostat or a traditional manual model, it’s important to pay attention to the settings. By keeping your thermostat at a higher temperature when you’re at work or school, you can save energy without even really trying.

  • 3. Buy Energy Star

When it comes to cutting utility costs, a quality system makes all the difference. Look forEnergy Star-certified appliances and home comfort systems when upgrading and watch your bills drop.

  • 4. Adjust Your Water Heater

The AC isn’t the only appliance affecting your energy bills. To reduce costs, check the thermostat on the water heater and set it back to 120 degrees. Not only does this act save you energy, but it also prevents family members from accidentally scalding themselves.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
