4 Tips for Saving Energy in Saint Charles This Summer 

Spring is great for a couple reasons: flowers start to bloom, you can open up windows for crisp air and your utility bill is usually at its most economical. That’s because you’re not relying on your heat or air conditioner.

But as temps begin to climb, so do your energy costs. Here are a few suggestions for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping costs less expensive.

1. Schedule Seasonal AC Maintenance

Giving your air conditioning system a seasonal maintenance appointment can help it run more efficiently and cut down costs. Switching out your air filter will help keep energy bills less expensive.

If your air conditioning equipment has seen better days, spring is a good time to replace it. The energy-saving options in updated AC systems is a huge advantage for keeping your energy bill down.

2. Start with Your Thermostat

There’s a painless way you can save up to 10% on home comfort bills. Just turn your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours a day.

Understanding how to efficiently schedule your thermostat is the smartest way to reduce energy expenses in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re in the house. Think about it this way, the lower the difference between outside temperatures and indoor temperatures, the lower your energy cost will be.
    • When you’re not at home, set the thermostat to a much higher temperature or turn it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty home.

3. Try Other Approaches to Cool Your Home

You can try a few other approaches to help keep your residence comfortable:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By running a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no loss in comfort. Have your fan turn counterclockwise during the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This moves cool air more equally when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly changes into heat as it moves through windows. Keep your home comfortable by closing blinds and curtains when you’re not sitting in sunny rooms.

4. Look Into Buying a Smart Thermostat

You’ve left home and suddenly realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you fret about it the full day!

Smart thermostats figure out your schedule and adjust the temp when you’re not around to help you save energy and money. You can also change the conditions from anywhere with your phone.
