How to Economically Cool Your Home in Pine Bluff, AR

Staying cool during summer in Pine Bluff, AR, can be a challenge when the weather turns hot and humid. If you follow these simple tips to run your central air conditioner, you can remain comfortable and still save money on your utility bills:

Install a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats automatically control the temperature in your house, even when you’re not at home. Set the temperature at a reasonable level to stay comfortable, typically 75 to 78 degrees. Note that for every degree higher that you set the thermostat, you’ll save 3% in electricity bills.

Install a Whole-House Fan

Often called attic fans because of their usual placement, whole-house fans pull hot air out of the attic, which can be stifling on extremely hot days. By keeping the attic cooler, the living area of your home will also remain cooler. Thus, your central air conditioning system won’t need to work as hard or as long to cool rooms to an acceptable level.

Install Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans won’t change the temperature of the rooms in which you install them. Instead, what they do is cool the inhabitants of the room as moving air makes you more comfortable. Constantly moving air allows you to set your thermostat higher and save money on energy costs.

Schedule Annual Preventive Maintenance

Scheduling annual preventive maintenance with one of our service techs saves money because a dirty system has to work harder to move air. Preventive maintenance not only ensures that all moving parts are working efficiently. It also means that we will clean critical areas of your HVAC system, resulting in cleaner air and a healthier home.
