That means pool parties, barbeques, and neighborhood gatherings. It also means your wallet could be taking a hit from running your AC more often.

Below are a few tips to help you save money this summer, and reduce potential AC repairs.

Money Saving Tips For The Summer – Use Ceiling Fans

Turn on ceiling fans to make a room feel cooler vs. turning the temperature down. Make sure your fan is rotating counterclockwise in the summer to get the most benefit.

Close The Blinds

When the hot sun beats through your window, it affects the thermostat. During the warmest part of the day, close your blinds. It can also help insulate your windows, which stops the cold air from escaping.

Money Saving Tips For The Summer – Invest In A Smart Thermostat

Now might be the time to upgrade. Smart thermostats control heating and cooling when you’re not home to save money.

Plus, you can adjust the settings remotely using an app on your phone or via voice commands. It also gives you peace of mind to have control of your AC anytime, anywhere.

Check The Placement Of Your Thermostat

If your thermostat is in direct sunlight, you run the risk of getting false readings. The thermostat records the temperature of your home, specifically the room in which it is placed, to determine if your system needs to kick on.

If the thermostat is near a hot window it “thinks” the room is warmer than it actually feels, causing your AC to mistakenly kick on. When placed accurately, it will help to decrease your chances of unnecessary AC Repairs.

Money Saving Tips For The Summer – Bump Up The Temperature

To save the most money, set your thermostat to the highest possible temperature where you are comfortable. The US Department of Energy recommends aiming for an indoor temperature of 78°F when you’re at home.
