If you live in Florida, you know all about hot, muggy weather. At Del-Air
Heating & Air Conditioning, not only are we committed to helping your
family keep cool in the Florida heat, but it’s also our goal to
help you save money on
air conditioning services and your energy bill. Because energy conservation involves more than just
air conditioning, here are some of the quickest and most effective ways
to help you trim costs, and gain control over the energy usage in your home.
- Set your thermostat to 78 degrees and make sure your fan setting is switched
- If you’re leaving your home, try raising your thermostat to 82 degrees
- During the winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees, with the fan switched
to “auto.” To lower your costs even more, drop your thermostat
down to 65 degrees or cooler at night or when you’re out of the house.
- Clean or replace the filter in your air conditioning unit regularly which
will help it run more efficiently and cut down on your cooling costs.
- If you have a swimming pool, try and limit the amount of time you run the
pump each day.
- Try reducing your water heater temperature to 120 degrees, which is the
temperature setting recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy.
- When you leave a room, turn the ceiling fan off before you go. A fan that
runs constantly can cost homeowners up to $7 a month.
- If you have old, high-flow showerheads, replace them with more water-efficient
models to lower your monthly water bill.
- Adjust your washing machine’s water level to match the size of each
load, especially when using hot water. And always cold-rinse your clothes!
- Clean out the lint filter in your clothes dryer before each load to cut
drying times. Also, if your dryer has an auto sensor function, turn it
on to keep clothes from over-drying and wasting energy.
