How Do I Keep My AC Costs Down?

March 6, 2020

Did you know that there are several ways to keep your air conditioning costs down in South Florida? Save money and frustration by taking these steps to minimize the cost of cooling your home or business.

More Efficient Cooling Unit

One of the best ways to cut the costs of running your AC is to opt for an energy-efficient model. E•D•S Air Conditioning & Plumbing can help you choose a model that is the best economical and efficient choice for your space. There are also ways you can maximize savings with your current or new air conditioning unit. Instead of running your AC at a consistent temperature, opt for a programmable thermostat so you can maintain a comfortable temperature while you’re home and then increase the temperature while you’re out for more than a few hours.

Maintain Your AC Unit

Something as minimal as removing dust from your air vents and ducts can offer considerable savings on your AC. Change your filters regularly, as dirty filters can ultimately block airflow, causing your AC unit to work even harder to cool your residence or business. Make sure too, that floor vents are not blocked by furniture that could be constricting optimum air flow.

Minimize Activities That Heat Up Your Home

Try to minimize any activities in your home that generate a considerable amount of heat. For instance, using appliances such as a stovetop, clothes dryer or even a dishwasher can infuse unnecessary heat into your home that increases the temperature and signals the AC unit to work harder, ultimately using more energy.

Shade Your Indoor Environment

When the sun beats down through windows and doors, your home will absorb the extra heat. Small measures, such as closing shades, blinds and curtains can help cool down your home, resulting in less effort and money spent on your AC. You can also invest in insulated or reflective shades that block even more heat from entering your home.
