Everyone knows that there’s nothing more lovely than an air conditioner in the hot summer months, well, maybe nothing except not having to pay the bill for it. While Goettl can’t give you the secret of having someone else pay your energy bill for you, they can certainly give you some tips to make it a bit more manageable. This summer take a little care and you’ll be dealing with much smaller energy costs and a much happier pocketbook.
Get Your Unit Serviced Yearly – AC Units get old and tired after years of use, becoming less efficient and less able to properly cool your home. Each year you should have your unit serviced so that it can perform at peak efficiency. It may serve to get it replaced entirely if it’s over 12 years old, as recent innovations in energy efficiency can lower your bills even more effectively.
Get Outside – Ok, this one is kind of a no-brainer but the less time you spend in your house the less time you’ll need to keep it cool. While you’re out there open the windows and doors to help the cool breeze naturally lower the temperature in your home.
Programmable Thermostat – You’re not in your home every minute, but simple thermostats don’t know that. Wouldn’t it be great if the system would only work while there was someone around to enjoy it? Programmable thermostats can do just that, saving you money by only working when needed. Some are even accessible anywhere by smart phone.
Goettl has been working to keep Arizona cool since 1926, making great strides in cooling and heating technology with over 100 patents to mark their innovation. Don’t let this summer go by with an inefficient cooling system or cluttered ducts, give them a call today and see lower energy bills this summer!
