Summer Savings

Tips for Reducing Your Utility Bills This Summer

It’s not uncommon to see unusually higher energy bills during the summer months. After all, your air conditioning is working to keep your home comfortable, kids and guests can be in and out of the house, and extended vacations can have your home working on overdrive when not needed! Since your wallet shouldn’t have to feel such heavy summer time woes, see below for some tips for reducing your utility bills this season:

Unplug – Be sure to not only turn off devices but unplug them as well! Many still use energy even when in the off position. Don’t want to be bothered unplugging? Opt for a Smart Strip which will automatically cut power when devices don’t need it.

Keep doors and vents shut – Keep doors and vents closed to rooms that are not in use. No need to waste energy cooling off a guest room with no guests!

Turn off lights – Similar to our previous tip, keep lights off in rooms not in use. You may also want to make an effort to keeps light off during the day and instead rely on natural light to brighten the home.

Add insulation – Perhaps not too much can get through a crack in the wall, but one important thing that can is air. Your home can easily lose cool air (or warm air in the winter) by drifting outside through these spaces. Fill these gaps with insulation to reduce energy costs!

Take advantage of vacation settings – Whether its for your water heater or thermostat, if you know you’ll be away from the house for extended time adjust their settings to vacation mode. This way they aren’t working as hard to cool or heat your home.

Hang laundry outdoors – Bypass the dryer and let your clothing air-dry outside! Dryers can be a huge energy zap, so give them a break when not absolutely needed.

Call for AC maintenance – The air conditioning experts here at Patterson Plumbing will help make sure your unit is operating as efficiently as possible. Also make sure you have been changing your air filter, a dirty filter can easily restrict air flow!

Tips on Saving Energy at Home

For a lot of us, summer is a time to splurge. Whether you’re organizing a vacation or a backyard BBQ, your wallet’s bound to take a hit. If your home costs are putting a halt on your summer fun – see below for some tips on how to save money by curbing your energy costs:

  1. Give your AC a tune-up – An inefficient AC can cause high monthly bills. Maintenance and tune-ups are recommended by all manufacturers to help save on energy costs, ensure your unit lasts longer, increase home comfort, and avoid costly breakdowns in the future.
  2. Repair leaks – Not only in your pipes, but in your air ducts, fireplace dampers, doors, and windows as well. This way your AC isn’t working extra hard to cool off a house that has air escaping.
  3. Adjust thermostats – Set your AC thermostat fan switch to “auto” to save energy. Leaving it in the “on” position keeps air constantly running. Also, adjust your home’s thermostat by a few degrees to save on your cooling costs.
  4. Check your water heaters – If you’re leaving your home for a few days, make sure to check and fix any leaks surrounding your water heaters. As long as the water heater is operating properly, it’s a good idea to set the thermostat to a “vacation” setting so it won’t use energy to heat the water when you aren’t home.
