4 Tips for Saving Energy in Kansas City This Summer 

Spring is beautiful for more than a few reasons: flowers are blossoming, you can crack windows for fresh air and your power bill is often at its lowest. That’s because you’re not turning on your furnace or air conditioner.

But as temps begin to increase, so do your energy charges. Here are a few suggestions for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping costs less expensive.

1. Book Annual AC Maintenance

Giving your cooling system an annual maintenance visit can help it run more efficiently and reduce costs. Replacing your air filter will help keep energy charges low.

If your air conditioning equipment has had better days, spring is an excellent time to update it. The energy-saving features in newer AC systems is a big plus in keeping your utility bill down.

2. Start with Your Thermostat

There’s a straightforward way you can save up to 10% on home comfort costs. Just set your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours each day.

Learning how to effectively work your thermostat is the easiest way to reduce energy costs in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Think about it this way, the lower the difference between outside temperatures and interior temperatures, the smaller your energy bill will be.
    • When you’re out, set the thermostat to a considerably higher temperature or turn it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty home.

3. Take Advantage of Other Ways to Cool Your Space

You can take advantage of several other approaches to help keep your residence at the right temperature:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By using a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no loss in comfort. Have your fan spin counterclockwise during the summer, which drives cool air upward. This disperses cool air more uniformly when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly transforms into heat as it passes through windows. Keep your home comfortable by shutting blinds and curtains when you’re not using sunny areas.

4. Think About Buying a Smart Thermostat

You’re out and about and immediately realize you failed to turn up the thermostat. Then you worry about it the whole day!

Smart thermostats pick up on your routine and correct the temp when you’re out to help you save energy and money. You can also change the temp from anywhere with your phone.

These professional ideas will all help keep summer energy charges less expensive. If you decide it’s time to upgrade your thermostat or need AC installation online.
