Is your summer energy bill stressing you out? Here are a few tips to help ease the stress of the monthly bill.
Change Your Filter. Set a monthly reminder on your calendar to make sure your filter is replaced. The replacement of the filter can have a huge impact on the functionality of your HVAC unit. (Using a reusable filter? Remove your filter and then rinse with a water hose.)
Add bleach or vinegar to the drain. That’s right! Adding a half cup of bleach or vinegar can help reduce any blockage, helping your unit cool your home throughout the hottest part of the season.
Clear debris. Is your exterior unit shaded by trees? Be sure to remove any leaves or tree limbs.
Install a programmable thermostat. Your routine can be busy; adding a programmable thermostat adds the peace of mind knowing your unit isn’t cooling an empty home. Increase the temperature while you’re away by 2-4 degrees will help save money on your electricity bill.
Purchase a maintenance plan. Lastly, purchasing a maintenance plan that offers seasonal tune-ups can extend the life of your unit. Executive Air offers four maintenance plans for you to choose from.
