Air conditioners are a wonderful modern amenity that can be found in many homes across the United States. This is particularly interesting because many countries have yet to adopt air conditioning in the majority of their homes. Maybe it is because they rely on breeze through open windows or maybe it is because of the potential cost. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways that Americans can reduce their AC bills. In this video, you will learn what an HVAC contractor would tell you about your AC bill.
First, they would say to get a smart thermostat. This is because you can set the hours on the smart thermostat so that the AC does not run nearly as much when you are not home.
In general, it is recommended to set the thermostat to a five degree difference while away. Further, you can set it to start adjusting the temperature back a hour before arriving back home so that it has plenty of time to adjust the temperature back to how you like it. Lastly, consider running ceiling fans to keep your air circulating. This will make your home feel several degrees cooler.
