Air conditioning is a must during those hot days of summer, and it could certainly take a huge bite out of your wallet. The good news is that you don’t have to sacrifice a cool home to get your energy bills under control. With some slight adjustments to your home’s thermostat, you can make your air conditioner work more efficiently. First, turning off your AC when you leave your home and then turning it on full blast when you come back to cool the house back down is a big no-no. This will only make your unit work harder and skyrocket your bill which will eventually lead to high air conditioner repair costs. Instead, raise your thermostat temperature up several degrees while you’re away to save your bill. Follow the rest of these tips and you’ll enjoy a nice cool summer without the added costs.
