Residents in Cartersville, Georgia, want to keep their utility bills as low as possible during the spring. You can do many things to help your air conditioner run efficiently. Being proactive keeps cooling bills as low as possible as temperatures get warmer. Here are a few energy-saving tips to help:
Clean Your Air Conditioner Vents
If the air conditioner vents around your home are coated with debris, such as dust and pet hair, the cooling system has to work harder to cool your home. Spend some time cleaning the vents with a soft cloth. It could make a big difference this spring and summer.
Consider Installing Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans don’t make the air in your home cooler by themselves. Instead, they circulate the air to make the effect of the air conditioner more noticeable. Installing a ceiling fan in a high-traffic area of your home can make you feel cooler and more comfortable. Make sure your ceiling fans rotate in a counterclockwise direction during the summer to experience the windchill effect.
