Are you the type of person who uses your air conditioner day in and day out during the hot summer months? If so, you’re not alone.
While there’s nothing wrong with this, it’s important to remember that AC use will have an impact on your electric bill.
If you want to remain cool and comfortable, all the while saving on your electric bill, here are three times to turn up your thermostat:
- When you go to work. If you won’t be home, it makes good sense to turn up your thermostat a degree or two. This won’t have any impact on you – since you’re at work – but it will definitely save you some money.
- When you go to sleep. Yes, you want to be cool during the nighttime hours, however, you don’t have to crank your AC for this to happen. Here’s why: since temperatures are lower at night, you can probably get away with raising your thermostat.
- When temperatures dip. There will be times when it’s so hot that you have no choice but to run your AC continually. There will also be times when temperatures dip, allowing you to turn up your thermostat and save some money.
With these tips you can remain comfortable in the months to come, all without sacrificing your budget. It’s not as hard as you think!
