How Can I Lower my Energy Bills?
Living in South Florida in the summertime means cranking up the A/C but luckily, there are ways to keep your energy bill low and keep you cool. Our experts at Caner Air Conditioning and Electrical know the importance of energy efficiency, and these tips can help you save money all year long. Now that’s comfort you can count on.
Tip #1: Use a programmable Nest Thermostat.
The Nest Learning Thermostat is the first thermostat to get Energy Star certified, meaning it has been verified to save more energy than traditional thermostats.
On average, people saved 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills by using a Nest thermostat. In less than two years, Nest thermostats pay for themselves.
Tip #2: Switch out your lights.
Halogen incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and light-emitting diode bulbs (LEDs) last 25% longer than traditional bulbs and use anywhere from 25-80% less electricity.
Tip #3: Upgrade your HVAC system.
Did you know that heating alone is responsible for more than 40% of home energy use? Your HVAC system is made up of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment that needs to be maintained to ensure it is in proper working order.
If you live in a home for 10+ years and haven’t replaced your HVAC unit, it’s time to give us a call. We also recommend performing routine maintenance once a year – so don’t wait until it’s too late!
By being mindful and following these tips, you can save money and conserve energy-use in your home. Your wallet will thank you for living an energy-conscious lifestyle, and so will the environment! Take time to consider how you can save energy and save yourself from unnecessary expenses that could have been avoided.
