3 Ways to Fight the Heat and Keep Energy Waste in Check
Sweltering hot summers make air conditioning a necessity when you live in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. It’s not necessary to drain your bank account, however, to stay comfortably cool. You can improve the performance of your AC system and still manage your cooling costs. Learn about three easy ways you can enhance your comfort and curb energy waste.
Any gap in the exterior walls, ceilings, windows, and doors of your home will allow hot air inside. Leaks and cracks also cause cool air to escape. Use weatherstripping, caulk, and spray-foam insulation to seal any leaks. Eliminating drafts will lower your cooling expenses. Don’t forget about the attic. Reducing energy waste is just one of the benefits of a well-insulated attic.
Smart Thermostat Installations
You can reduce cooling costs by using your thermostat wisely. If the indoor temperature is close to the temperature outdoors, you’ll place less demand on your AC. Adjust the thermostat as best as possible without sacrificing comfort. To reduce energy consumption, it’s best to avoid constant thermostat adjustments. The U.S. Department of energy recommends leaving settings for at least 8 hours. With a smart thermostat, you can regulate your home’s temperature to match your personal preferences. We’re happy to offer an impressive selection of intelligent thermostats. With our Wi-Fi enabled models, you can you track your energy usage remotely from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
