4 Tips for Saving Energy in Champaign This Summer 

Spring is nice for many reasons: flowers are blooming, you can open windows for fresh air and your utility bill is normally at its cheapest. That’s because you’re not relying on your heating or air.

But as temps begin to rise, so do your energy bills. Here are some suggestions for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping bills less expensive.

1. Schedule Yearly AC Maintenance

Giving your cooling system a seasonal maintenance appointment can help it operate more efficiently and lower costs. Changing out your air filter will help keep energy charges less expensive.

If your air conditioning equipment has experienced better days, spring is a smart time to upgrade it. The energy-saving options in updated cooling systems is a huge benefit for keeping your utility charges down.

2. Turn Down Your Thermostat

There’s an easy way you can save up to 10% on HVAC costs. Just turn your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours a day.

Learning how to expertly work your thermostat is the best way to reduce energy costs in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Think of it this way, the lower the difference between exterior temperatures and indoor temperatures, the cheaper your cooling cost will be.
    • When you’re out, set the thermostat to a significantly higher temperature or shut it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty house.

3. Experiment with Other Ways to Cool Your Home

You can take advantage of several other methods to help keep your home cool:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By starting a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no loss in comfort. Have your fan move counterclockwise in the summer, which pushes cool air upward. This moves cool air more evenly when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds closed—Sunlight quickly transforms into heat as it moves through windows. Keep your house comfortable by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not sitting in sunny areas.

4. Look Into Installing a Smart Thermostat

You’re out of the house and suddenly realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you think about it the full day!

Smart thermostats pick up on your schedule and change the temp when you’re not around to help you save money. You can also set the temp from anywhere with your phone.
