Air Conditioning Tips & Advice

Air Conditioning Tips & Advice (25)

One of the best ways to reduce your cooling bill during the summer months is to reduce the sources of heat and humidity inside the home that can make your air conditioner work harder to cool your home. Here are some of the most common sources of heat and humidity inside the home.

1. Lighting - Older incandescent light bulbs lose as much as 90% of their energy as heat loss. By upgrading to more energy efficient CFL or LED bulbs, you won't just reduce the heat, you'll save electricity as well.

2. Kitchen - Kitchens are a major source of heat and humidity inside the home. When the weather is hot, consider cooking outside on a grill, or use a microwave instead of your oven or range. 

3. Laundry Room - Clothes dryers generate a lot of heat and humidity. Consider hanging clothes outside on a clothes line. An exhaust fan installed in the laundry room will help to vent the hot, humid air outside.

4. Dishwashers - During hot weather washing dishes in the sink will reduce heat and humidity. If you run the dishwasher turn off the heat dry and let the dishes air dry instead.
