Considering the brutal nature of the winter we endured this past year, a bit of summer heat is a welcome change of pace. Of course, before long, homeowners throughout the Boston, MA area will be flipping on their air conditioners in an effort to cool down their homes. If you are hesitant to do so because you want to put off the costs of cooling your home for as long as possible, keep the following tips in mind instead. Running a whole-house air conditioning system, even the most efficient makes and models out there, is always going to come at a cost. By working with FB Electrical Services Inc., though, you can minimize that cost as much as possible.
Have Ceiling Fans? Use Them!
For some reason, some homeowners seem to think that their ceiling fans are more fashionable than they are functional. This could not be further from the truth, though. While your ceiling fans are not going to actively cool the air in your home, as an air conditioner will, they are able to help distribute cooled air throughout the house more effectively. This can help to make your home feel more comfortable, allowing you to raise the temperature at the thermostat a bit. They also use far less energy than ACs, so put them to use, rather than your air conditioner, on stuffy nights that aren’t quite intolerably hot.
Take Advantage of Cool Nights
Not only will ventilating your home when the sun goes down help you to boost the quality of the air in your home, but it can also take a serious amount of strain off of your air conditioning system. It sounds simple, but simply shutting down your AC and opening up the windows when the air outside cools down can make a big difference. Close the windows early in the morning when you wake up in order to trap cool air therein.
