As temperatures increase this season, the air conditioning works harder—which not only taxes your system but also increases your energy bill! However, there are things that can prevent you from losing your cool this summer—helping both your HVAC system and your bank account.

Class Act Property Solutions recommends following these simple tips for keeping costs down as much as possible when your air conditioning unit is working overtime.

  • Keep the blinds and curtains closed. As simple as it may seem, keeping the blinds closed on windows can save up to 7 percent on your bills and lower indoor temperatures significantly—up to 20 degrees!
  • Set your ceiling fans to rotate counter-clockwise and use them often. Ceiling fans work best when they are adjusted seasonally. Setting ceiling fans to rotate counter-clockwise in the summer months (and at a high speed) will allow the airflow to create a breeze effect that will make you feel cooler!
  • Open or close your doors. Yes, the door swings both ways on this tip. For rooms that are not being used, close the register vents and close the door so that air is not circulating through unused rooms. However, it is beneficial for rooms that are being used to have an open door to enable air to circulate freely and not get tied up in one room, leaving “hot-spots” in another.

This time of year, it is tempting to turn down the air conditioning—but implementing these simple tips will help keep your house cooler and enable your air conditioner to run more efficiently, without racking up an enormous energy bill.

If you find that your air conditioning unit needs to be cleaned, tuned-up, repaired, or replaced, Class Act Property Solutions recommends contacting KB Complete, https://kbcomplete.com, to get your unit working efficiently for the summer.
