Acu-Temp’s AC Tips for a Cooler 2019

A new year is upon us and with it comes the excitement of planning for the future. And, we all know what that means: resolutions of all kinds are in the works and some will stick and others will fizzle but overall, there’s a general glow of positive energy surrounding the possibilities. With all this buzz about starting things off right, we thought, how can Acu-Temp resolve to help our valued customers in 2019? 

The answer for us has to do with our commitment to keeping you cool. It’s not enough for Acu-Temp that your home temperature is nice and comfortable year-round. No, we want you to feel good and save money doing it! What better way is there to start the year off than with saving money on your electric bill?! So, here it is, our best tips for savings you’ll notice when it comes to heating and cooling your home. 

AC Tips for a Lower Electric Bill 

  1. Take Advantage of the Cooler Winter Weather: Watch the weather report and plan ahead. Turn your AC off, open the windows when the temperatures dip and let the cool air flow! This gives your HVAC system a break and freshens the air in the home. 
  2. Go Digital! It’s time to upgrade that old thermometer with a digital product that you can set to your own preferences and manage easily from your phone! It makes it so easy to adjust the temperature in your home to go along with the ups and downs of Florida winter weather. One day it’s 85 degrees and sunny and you have to run the AC, but tomorrow, it might be in the 40’s and feel like it’s about to snow. Welcome to Florida! 
  3. When No One’s Home – Make it an AC Free Zone: It’s important to set your HVAC unit on a schedule according to your daily routine. If you’re gone from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday, then why waste all that energy to cool your cats? Set your system to a higher temperature in the day while you’re away, and then schedule it to kick in and cool your home to your preferred temperature 30 minutes before you typically arrive. 
  4. Insulate for Savings: If your home isn’t properly insulated, you could be watching the dollars literally evaporate into thin air. Adding insulation to an attic space is a relatively simple process for the DIY enthusiasts, but if you’re like most hard-working folks out there, it may be best to hire a professional to take care of this for you.
  5. A Clean System is a Happy System: When your HVAC system receives regular maintenance and cleaning, it will operate at peak efficiency which means you’ll save $$$. Now’s the best time to have an Acu-Temp Air Conditioning Technician properly clean your AC ducts, change the filter, and service the HVAC unit. Whether you’re heating or cooling your home this winter, we’ll make sure your AC system is in tip-top shape. This is also beneficial for improving air quality in your home as it may result in removing dust, pet dander and other allergens from your ducts and vents.  
  6. Upgrade Your HVAC System: If you’ve got an old clunker of an AC system, it may be the right time to think about upgrading to a new energy efficient HVAC unit. While there is the initial expense, many manufacturers offer rebates or discounts and your electric bill will definitely thank you over time with huge savings. Call us for a consultation and we can recommend the perfect HVAC unit for your home.
