How to Save Money on Air Conditioning

A smart homeowner knows how to get the most out of their home, especially when it comes to energy efficiency. The pros at ComfortAire Heating Cooling can help you with that. Below, we’re sharing some of our favorite air conditioning tips for summer. Use them to help you save on your energy bill, then call us in either Wisconsin Rapids or Stevens Point for more advice.

Program Your Thermostat

There’s no reason to run your A/C at full blast if you’re not home. Programmable thermostats let you schedule temperature changes in your house, helping you save money on energy usage without sacrificing your comfort. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates about a one percent savings for every degree difference you make—not bad!

Get Your Fans Moving

Homeowners with multiple stories know how hard it can be to cool off their second floor. You can help your A/C system and save money on air conditioning costs by keeping a ceiling and standing fan running in the summer. Just make sure the ceiling fan blades rotate counterclockwise—it will help push cooler air back down to you.

Schedule Your A/C Maintenance

Annual A/C maintenance is the best way to ensure your unit runs at its optimum efficiency all summer. Our licensed technicians will calibrate your thermostat, replace the air filter, and check all components. You’ll add to your system’s life while preventing costly repairs in the future. Be sure to mention our promotion and get $10 off your A/C clean and check.

Get a Newer, More Efficient Air Conditioner

It’s easy to get distracted by the up-front costs of a new air conditioner, but like any long-term investment, it will pay off in spades. ComfortAire proudly offers a full line of Bryant® air conditioner units for your Wisconsin Rapids or Stevens Point home. Along with cool, clean air, you’ll also see the positive difference in your energy bills with a much higher-efficiency unit installed.
