3 Easy Ways To Improve Home Efficiency Today!
ACE Home Services is here to tell you about 3 simple adjustments you can make to your home, helping you make it more efficient. These adjustments can help reduce the amount of energy you use and lower your monthly costs.
Change Your Air Filter
Changing your air filter is one of the easiest ways you can save money. Even if the quality of air seems fine in your home, you should check your air filter regularly. During season of high use, such as summer, we suggest you check your air filter every month and change it as needed. A dirty air filter can disrupt air pressure within your HVAC system and cause expensive damages. It can also affect the cleanliness and circulation of air within your home.
Turn Up The Thermostat
Summer’s in Arizona can be rough, with daily temperatures averaging over 110°F. This is often the time homeowners see the biggest increase in their monthly electric bills as their A/C is running nonstop to cool their home. In order to see significant savings during this time, we suggest increasing your thermostat by just 2 degrees! On average, any where from 75-78°F is a good range to set your thermostat during the summer.
Clean The Outdoor Unit
Another easy way to help increase your home’s efficiency is to check your outdoor unit. Make sure there is no dirt or debris blocking this unit from effectively drawing in air. If you see any debris, carefully remove it. If there is any dirt on the condenser coil, gently wash it away with a hose.
