Air Conditioning Consumption becomes one of the highest utility expenses during hot summer months.

Planet Save shared some tips on how to lower air conditioning expenses.

“Keeping your home or office cool during the hot months of the year can go a long way toward having happier and healthier occupants. But it can also be a huge expense, both to your pocketbook and to the environment, due to the eco-footprint of the energy required for air conditioning, as well as the actual cost of that energy. Both of those costs can be effectively reduced through making some changes in your air conditioning habits to conserve energy while still staying cool.”

Routine Maintenance is a Must

“Change your filter regularly: If you notice a difference in your air conditioning from one year to the next, it’s more than likely due to airflow. Filters should be changed every 30 to 90 days, therefore if you haven’t done so recently, the first step to take is to change the filter. You should also make sure nothing is blocking your cold air returns and registers.”
