Particularly in Maryland, temperatures can heat up quickly during the first few weeks of spring. With this, you may be tempted to blast your air conditioning to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home this season. While the constant stream of air conditioning may keep your home at a chilly temperature throughout the warm weeks of spring, it can also cause your energy costs to rise just as fast as the temperatures outside. Instead, consider these easy ways to save money on energy costs during the spring and summer months of 2019.
Control the Temperature in Your Home Throughout the Day
Rather than leaving your home set to one temperature at all hours of the day, you can save money by controlling the temperature before you leave the house and when you return home for the evening. By turning your thermostat higher before you leave for work and lowering the temperature only when you are home, you can save a considerable amount of money on energy costs during the year.
Keep Your Shades Closed During the Day
Prevent your home from heating up by ensuring that your curtains and shades are closed during the day. This simple step will help to prevent the sun from heating up various rooms of your home, making the overall temperature of your house rise throughout the sunniest hours of the day. Instead, close your curtains before leaving for work so that your air conditioning will not need to work twice as hard to cool your home while you are gone.
Check and Change Your Air Filters as Needed
Along with your regularly scheduled system maintenance, you should also be checking and changing your air filters regularly to ensure that your system is running efficiently. Without this step, your system could be working twice as hard to cool your home with your air conditioning running. In addition to ensuring that your system is running efficiently, changing your air filters will also help to improve the air quality of your home throughout the year.
Invest in Regularly Scheduled Maintenance for Your System
By investing in regularly scheduled maintenance for your HVAC system, you can ensure that your system is running well in every season. With this, scheduled regular maintenance will also help you to identify and resolve issues with your system before they advance to more serious issues that could require costly fixes.
