One of the biggest gripes people have in Kingsport and throughout the US is the increase in energy bills. Keeping your home cool is essential in the summer, but not having to pay an arm and a leg to make it happen is even better.
So what can you do on your own?
Use Ceiling Fans – This is a simple one, but making sure you are using ceiling fans keeps the air in your home circulating, and doesn’t let that stale heat sit around your home.
Close Your Windows During the Day and Open Them at Night – This is best for times in the spring when the daytime is considerably hot, and the nighttime is much cooler.
Have Your System Inspected and Serviced – Having a professional come out and service your equipment will not only make sure it lasts longer.
Close the Blinds During the Day – If you keep the sun out of your house, it will keep it cooler, leading to less AC needed to keep your home comfy.
Have an Energy Audit – Having a professional conduct an energy audit is a comprehensive way to evaluate how well your home uses energy.
Replace Your System – It may finally just be time to replace your system. Sometimes a system that is 12+ years old has simply run the course and needs to be replaced.
