How to lower your electricity bill in the summer

We have listed down five different ways you can reduce your electricity bill during Melbourne’s hot summer.

Block sunlight

For your air conditioner to perform optimally, you need to block sunlight by either putting curtains on your windows or covering them with a vine or shrub. The lesser sunlight in your room, the higher the performance of your air conditioner will be. Also, if you can place your outer unit in the shade, it would be a bonus.

Regular HVAC maintenance

Every HVAC system needs maintenance to function well. A faulty air conditioning unit consumes more electricity. Therefore, regular preventative maintenance helps keep major issues at bay, causing your ac to function well. You can visit Surrey Air for preventive maintenance of your split system etc.

Clean air filters

Dust and dirt buildup can block your system’s air filters. As a consequence, your system functions harder thereby, consuming more energy. If you want to lower your summer electric bill, make regular washing and cleaning of air filters a practice. It will also help the air conditioning unit to function effectively. Also, if you think your air filters are old, you can always replace them.

Programmable thermostat

Always opt for programmable thermostats because they are one of the best ways to reduce AC electricity bills. They allow users to adjust room temperature as per their comfort. Moreover, a programmable thermostat also maintains a consistent temperature throughout. The estimates suggest that users can save up to 10 percent of electricity expenses with programmable thermostats.

Seal openings

If you have any openings in your house that can potentially let the heat in, you should seal them. If heat keeps entering the property, it is going to affect the performance of your air conditioners, causing them to compensate for the heat by consuming electricity.
