Ceiling and Exhaust Fans
Circulating air can cool a room by 8 degrees. Make sure you reverse the direction on your ceiling fan and turn it on high for maximum comfort. Exhaust fans draw the hot and humid air out of your bathrooms or kitchens, leaving you feeling cooler.
LED lights give off much less heat than their incandescent predecessors and use less energy-saving you money.
On high humidity days a dehumidifier aids your air conditioner so it doesn’t have to work as hard.
Smart home devices like Nest can reduce cooling costs by 15% by adjusting the temperature of the home for when you are there.
Installing an attic fan draws hot air out of your home, so your air conditioning doesn’t need to work as hard to keep your home cool.
Inadequate insulation can be sending that cool & dry A/C air right out the roof. If you don’t have enough insulation, adding more you could cut your air conditioning bill by up to 15%.
