It’s hot and humid and your air conditioner has probably been running pretty much nonstop since June. All that work at keeping your home cool and comfortable is costing you a lot of money. In fact, it can cost you around two to three hundred dollars a month to run your AC 24/7. You need to be able to stop the bleeding of your bank account so to speak and an electrician in Miami can help you do just that. The team at Elcon Electric is here to help you make staying cool a little more affordable.
1-You love the sun and your houseplants love the sun, but your AC would rather you kept the sun out of the house during the heat of the day. You can cut down on the heat in your home by investing in sun-blocking drapes for windows facing the South. Close blinds during the day as well. You can invest in window tint for your home windows as well, which goes a long way to keeping the sun out.
2-Open your windows at night and enjoy the fresh air. Before you leave for work in the morning, close the windows to trap the cool air in the house.
3-Use ceiling fans to circulate the cool air and to help create a cool breeze while you are sleeping or sitting down for the evening. You can choose to have a ceiling fan installed by an experienced electrician. Miami homeowners will want to have at least one fan in the center of the living room, but it helps to have fans in the bedrooms as well. It makes sleeping much more comfortable.
4-Use standing fans to help keep you cool. This will reduce the urge to turn the AC down to feel comfortable.
These tips can help save you a great deal of money on your cooling costs. Give Elcon Electric a call to have your ceiling fans installed.
