The best way to save money on air conditioning is to turn it off. Yes, but then why did you buy it in the first place? So use it, but use it wisely. Here are some tips for a lower air conditioning bill.
Ensuring an efficient system
First of all, there are many technical problems that your air conditioner can have that make it work inefficiently. Because of these problems, the air conditioner works harder to reach the temperature you want and uses more energy that you have to pay for. Remember to have your air conditioner checked at least twice a year to make sure everything is working properly.
Change your filters
Dirty air filters put a strain on your air conditioner. Change them often to reduce your air conditioner’s power consumption. If your filter is clogged, dirt and air particles can build up in the air ducts and lead to further inefficiency.
Get a programmable thermostat.
A programmable thermostat allows you to maintain the perfect temperature when you’re home. If you are asleep or away for more than 3 hours, there is no reason to have a temperature that no one likes. You can install Melissa yourself for about 99 euros. Melissa allows you to control the temperature from your smartphone, making temperature monitoring much more efficient. It will save you up to 25% on your electricity bill.
Turn down the temperature to lower your electric bill
Even a small adjustment on your thermostat can result in a lower air conditioning bill, so turn the temperature down a bit and pay less.
Air conditioning costs account for about 43% of your monthly electric bill. Use these energy-saving measures to save on your air conditioning bill and ensure your system is running efficiently.
