The North Carolina heat comes full force so it best to prepare yourself by ensuring your HVAC system is fully functioning and ready to keep you cool during those hot summer days. Your preparation doesn’t end there. If your HVAC is fully functioning, you may be concerned on how well it may be working when your power bill comes in! Here are a few tips that may assist you in keeping those bills as low as you air conditioning.

Air filters
Probably the least costly thing you have to concern yourself with when it comes to your HVAC but just as important! Replacing air filters or cleaning them, are vital to keeping efficient air-flow and cleanliness in your home! You should do this every month ensure you’re getting optimum use out of your HVAC. Efficient air flow also directly affects your bill and could potentially save you hundreds of dollars a year on your power bill!

Keeping your a/c unit protected with a cover or even the trees outside can assist in not only keeping your a/c unit clean but can also cut energy consumption down!

New models
Although this may seem like a costly decision, replacing your air conditioning unit can be a smart long term decision. A/C units have gotten better through the years on from how loud they are to the materials used to construct them! Newer, more efficient models can ultimately help lower costs. What use to take over 5,000 watts of energy per hour, has now been lowered to less than 2,000 watts.

If refrigerators now have screens that you can play music off of and have cameras that will show you what’s inside of your fridge, programmable thermostats should be no surprise. Programmable thermostats allow you to schedule and regulate the temperature in your home while you’re away. This may be seen as another potentially large cost, but over time it will prove to help lower those monthly costs.
