Top Summer Air Conditioning Tips To Keep Your Energy Bills Cool

By // 2014.08.19

AC Tips for summerOne of the constant realities of life in Arizona is that during the summer the monthly energy bills skyrocket. There are many reasons for this but mostly it’s attributed to the additional resources needed to keep a home in Arizona cool during the hot summer months. There are a few things, however, you can do inside your home every month to reduce the internal temperature and the amount of energy needed to power your AC systems. Here are a few AC tips for summer that are sure to save you a pretty penny each month on your utility bills.

3 Tips To Keep The Monthly Bills Low

Tip #1 – Depend On Those Window Shades

Most homeowners in Arizona have two forms of window protection inside their homes: shades and blinds. Using blinds to keep direct sunlight from entering your home has been shown to reduce your indoor temperature up to 10 degrees in mid-summer. However, did you know that by adding a sunshade, such as a window treatment, drapes or even a window tint could further reduce your internal home temperature another 5-10 degrees? This is why we recommend you make sure every window in your home has some sort of window treatment that will reduce the amount of direct sunlight entering your home.

If you want to ensure your home doesn’t look like a dungeon, try opening your blinds to windows that are not directly in the sunlight then switching later in the day to the other windows.

First – Always Define Your Needs Before You Shop

One of the biggest mistakes home owners make when shopping for a replacement air conditioning unit is they rush into buying without looking at the big picture. For example, if you’re replacing an older AC unit, it’s quite possible that the unit is at least 10 years old. The reality of the matter is that technology and manufacturing capability has significantly changed in the past 10 years. So it begs to reason that if you’re looking to simply replace your old unit with its current equivalent, you might not be getting the best bang for your buck.
