Learn to Save Electricity with Express Air

Florida can get extremely hot and humid during the year, and many homeowners ask us how they can get their energy bills lower. Our Express Air Conditioning & Heating team is here to help if you are looking for energy-efficient ways to save money. We will explain how homeowners can save on their electricity bills with your Pensacola AC services.

Schedule Seasonal AC Tune-Ups

Preventative maintenance will ensure that your air conditioner system is working to its best ability. Receiving a seasonal tune-up on your HVAC system is vital. Tune-ups are necessary to ensure your system is working in an energy-efficient manner, if there are any issues, your AC can use up excess energy. Scheduling your tune up allows a licensed technician to inspect your AC unit and find any problems that could result in energy waste and costly AC repair.

Install Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are an easy way to cut down your energy costs. With Smart Thermostats, homeowners can program the temperature of their homes throughout the day. Smart thermostats make it easy to set different temperatures for different parts of the day. If you are usually out of the house at a particular hour, you can raise your temperature, so you are not wasting energy on cooling your home.

Unplug Devices

When your devices are not in use but still plugged in, they can still use energy—unplugging devices like chargers or lamps when not in use decreases your energy bill. Many homeowners will use surge protectors in their homes to unplug many devices at once when they are not in use.

Utilize Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a great way to disperse heat in your home. When ceiling fans are turned on, they can cool off your skin while causing the hot air to rise, away from the people in your house. There is also a setting in most ceiling fans to rotate in the opposite direction, causing them to distribute the heat back down in colder weather. Utilizing these components of your ceiling fan will assist with electrical efficiency and productivity.

Use the Weather to Your Advantage

Regardless of if it’s summer or winter, Florida’s temperatures are constantly changing. During the summer months, an easy way to cut costs on your energy bill is by opening up some windows at night when the air is cooler. You can ease off using your AC to cool you down at night by letting in the cool air.

On the other hand, you can allow the sun’s heat to warm your home on colder days during the winter. By opening up your blinds, the heat will enter your home. Opening doors and windows can allow more air pollutants to enter your home. When you have more outdoor air entering your home, it is vital to check your air filters more often.

Use Electricity at Certain Hours

Most electricity companies use “peak hours” to determine your energy usage. Be sure to check directly with your energy provider to check your peak hours. If you use more energy during these peak hours, your bill will be higher. Using power in non-peak hours, such as the evening, can decrease energy bills.
