As Floridians, we understand the importance of having a quality
air conditioner. However, as we crank our ACs when the temperatures rise, our energy bills
seem to subsequently rise, too. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice
comfort to obtain lower energy bills. Learn how you can save money on
your energy bills in Palm Beach County & Martin County, here:
Swap Traditional Light Bulbs for Energy-Efficient Options
If you have traditional light bulbs around your home that aren’t
the most energy efficient, consider swapping them for an alternative light
bulb. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs)
are great choices as they not only last up to 25 times longer than traditional
bulbs, but they use 25 percent to 80 percent less energy, too.
Program Your Thermostat
If you have a programmable thermostat, then you can utilize the device
to save money on your energy bills. Programmable thermostats allow you
to program your air conditioning system to turn on and off at a predetermined
time. Try programming your AC around your lifestyle—for example,
program your thermostat to turn off on a day when you’ll be out
of the home for a few hours. You can also set the thermostat to turn on
or adjust to a cooler temperature before you get home, meaning you can
save on your energy bills without sacrificing comfort!
Get a Maintenance Checkup for Your AC
If your air conditioning system is not functioning as efficiently as it
could be, then it is likely driving up your energy costs. When your AC
isn’t routinely cleaned and checked for underlying issues, it has
to work harder to produce the same amount of cooling power for your home.
The result? more energy usage and higher energy bills. To combat this
issue, schedule a
maintenance checkup for your AC twice per year. A trained Palm Beach County technician will
clean your system and check that there are no underlying issues impeding
