Tips For Saving Money This Summer 

The heat is on! Summer is here and that means high energy bills! Luckily, energy-efficient technologies like upgraded air conditioning, smart thermostats, and attic insulation can help lower these bills and make our homes more comfortable. Our summer energy tips help you keep your home in top shape this season. Here are 3 tips that can save you money this summer and offset the season’s rising temperatures:

Upgrade your HVAC systems

Installing a new air conditioning system is a big investment but changing your AC unit can lower your energy consumption significantly and save you money on your electricity bill. DoE data suggests that replacing an old air conditioner with a modern, energy-efficient unit can save you up to 40% on cooling costs.

When your home and HVAC system work together, you can save a lot of money on your monthly energy bill. Don’t risk expensive breakdowns and sweltering heat indoors as you wait for help – be proactive with summer HVAC maintenance and limit your risk of malfunctions and discomfort.

 

 

Cool down the smart way

A smart thermostat allows your home’s temperature to be controlled either automatically, on a schedule, or if it’s Wi-Fi enabled, through an app. Smart thermostats have become one of the most popular ways to control energy use because they monitor your home for you and adjust to your everyday routines. Thanks to the Google Nest Thermostat, you can have better control over your AC’s energy spending, lowering your energy bill up to 15%!

 

Keep Your Home Warm Or Cool With Attic Insulation 

Did you know that insulation is one of the most efficient ways to save energy at home? Insulation is one of the best investments for your home. It is one of the best ways to save energy in your home because it creates a barrier that keeps the heat in during winter and out during summer meaning that households can reduce their heating or air-conditioning use, save energy, and save money.
