Summer 2016 Energy Saving Tips

During these hot summer days it can be a difficult thing to save energy. Here are some great tips to help you save!
  •       Keep your blinds, drapes or shades closed during the day.
  •       Use ceiling fans or windows fans instead of air conditioning.  Ceiling and window fans use much less electricity.
  •       Only use air conditioning when it is really hot outside.
  •       Turn off your air conditioning if you will be gone from home for a long time.
  •       Clean or replace your air conditioning filters every month (in both central and window air conditioners). Give us a call here at Serenity Air Inc. if you have questions about this!
  •       Turn the thermostat up a few degrees when you have the air conditioning on.  74 degrees is very comfortable and you are saving up to 5% on your electric bills for each degree of temperature change.
  •       If you can, shade your air conditioning unit.  If your unit is in the bright sun, it will use up to 5% more energy than if it was in the shade.

Using any of these tips will help you save on energy costs. The final tip is this: It may be time to replace your aging AC give us a call here at Serenity Air, Inc. and we can help you determine exactly what you need to do.
