Getting an electrician to assess your appliances and other items that may contribute to your energy bill, will ensure you leave no stone unturned. Receiving professional advice will save you valuable time in identifying the source of your problems. This will include your light bulbs, appliances, thermostats and air conditioning systems. A professional electrician can rewire circuits, install specialized upgrades and energy-enhancing technologies.
Because your AC unit plays such a big role in the comfort of your home, it contributes a great percentage to your electric bill. If your cooling system is placed in direct sunlight, it will use more energy for cooling than necessary. Having professional AC technician service your AC every quarter will ensure that your system is working efficiently. Along with this, installing a “smart” thermostat which knows when you are home or away and adjusts accordingly will save you money significantly. Also remember to change your filters every 30 days – dirty air fitters cause your unit to work overtime and keeping them clean will assist in the optimum performance on a day-to-day basis.
Having your windows fitted with energy saving window films will lower the temperature inside of your home by filtering sunlight and reducing heat build up and sun glare, while still allowing natural light in. The result is a more comfortable climate in your home and lower energy bills.
