As the temperatures climb higher and higher across the Front Range, your air conditioner may be working overtime to keep your home cool. But part of what makes the Rockies great is the variance in temperature. It can change 20, 30, even 40 degrees or more in a matter of hours. Even if the temperature hit three digits during the day, it’s quite possible it will cool down into the 60s at night.
That means while your air conditioner is an important part of your home during the day, there are other ways of keeping your home cool on cooler days and at night. That also means there are ways you can lower your monthly utility bills, and stop the wear and tear on your air conditioning system simply by giving it a break once in a while.
Give Your Air Conditioner A Break
Instead of letting your air conditioner run day and night, consider turning it off when the temperatures dip down to a comfortable level.
Turn Up The Temperature
Most HVAC professionals will tell you to aim for keeping your home around 78 degrees F during the summer. And when you leave home for extended periods of time, dial it back 5 to 10 degrees more.
If 78 degrees seems too warm, try it with some of the above tips. Adding a fan to the room you’re in can automatically make the air feel cooler. It can also prevent you from getting sick if you’re in and out of your home all day - extreme temperature variances aren’t good for your body.
Ensure Your AC Is In Top Shape
Is your AC unit operating as efficiently as possible? By calling in a professional for a tune up each year, you’ll ensure your equipment is in top condition. That means the filter will be cleaned or newly installed. It means it won’t be using more energy than necessary to produce cool air.
If you haven’t scheduled your maintenance visit yet for your air conditioner, now is the time. Those hit afternoons are coming. Are you prepared?
