It would be impossible to bear the Florida heat in the Summer or to weather the New York blizzards in the winter without air conditioning and heating. But what happens when the prices become too steep? You turn to the third section of this guide and heed our advice!
High Energy Use Means High Bill Prices
When summer strikes Florida and heat indices jump to upward of 100 degrees, air conditioners begin running on a constant basis. This can last for months. Does this mean that all Floridians are rich enough to afford high bills without care? No! It just means that they know the AC life hacks detailed below.
Two Things the Utility Companies Don’t Want You to Know
Information that helps you pay less to the monopolies in the utility industry is information that they don’t want you to have but that you need to know.
Install Ceiling Fans
You won’t need as much power going to your air conditioning units if you install ceiling fans.
Fans use significantly less energy than air conditioners and serve a complementary purpose for AC units: they increase the airflow throughout the space, making it feel cooler without actually lowering the temperature.
Close the Curtains
Keeping windows covered prevents sunlight from “cooking” the interior of the home, a process that typically raises temperatures. If the blinds are drawn, they’ll reflect the heat back into and through the window.
Keeping cool is a necessity, particularly in the Summer, but so is having money, so why waste it? Installing ceiling fans and keeping the curtains closed are two cool ways to stay cool.
