Your air conditioning is an essential tool for keeping your family cool throughout the hottest weeks of the summer. However, with kids going back to school after Labor Day, now is the perfect time to shut off your air conditioning when there is no one home during the day. As you prepare your home for the start of the school year, consider the many reasons to turn off your air conditioning with an empty house during the day.
Selective Use of Your Air Conditioning Saves You Money
While it may feel nice to come home to a cold house after work, your air conditioning could be running up your energy bill as it runs continuously throughout the day. By shutting your unit off for 6-8 hours while no one is home, you can easily save money on your energy bill by turning on your air conditioning only as you need it. This simple step could significantly reduce the cost of your energy bill into fall months.
Shutting Off Your A/C Extends the Lifespan of Your Unit
Preserve the lifespan of your unit by only using it when it is necessary. Doing this will allow you to maximize the amount of time that your unit is working without issue, as well as to enjoy fresh air in your home for longer. Prevent damage to your unit caused by overworking your air conditioning and shut off your unit during the school day.
Practice Green Initiatives in Your Home
In shutting off your air conditioning during the day, you are also practicing green initiatives for saving energy in your home. This practice will ultimately make your home more efficient, as well as ensure the efficiency of your air conditioning unit over time. If you are unsure about leaving your air conditioning off during the day because of pets or indoor houseplants, consider turning the temperature in your home up a few degrees, or opening the screened windows of the second floor to let air circulate throughout your home.
