We all know the weather can change fast! This is especially true if you live in our lovely Sunshine State of Florida; We go from hot to rainy, to sweltering in a snap! It’s hot and the sun is shining down, making you sweat, when you’re simply sitting in your home. All of a sudden it’s June, and again, it’s time to expect that harsh summer heat. Are you ready? Better question: Is your HVAC ready for all of that heavy air conditioning that getting ready to happen?
The fact that it’s hot out isn’t the only thing that you’ll need to endure either. The cost of cooling is expensive. Wouldn’t you rather spend that cooling money on something you really like? Perhaps you need a new car. Maybe you’d just like to go shopping for some fun summer clothes.
Luckily, there are a few ways you can save yourself some money before the heat gets too scorching and you end up throwing it all at your air conditioning unit.
3 Easy Steps to Save Money on Your Air Conditioning Bills
Easy Step #1
First, check to see that you are maintaining your air conditioners appropriately. This is something that many people forget to do or simply don’t want to do. Your unit will be using more energy to do a smaller amount of work if you don’t keep it maintained properly. All it takes is some general maintenance and cleaning to make sure the unit is in good condition. You can do this yourself! If you’re busy, or simply don’t want to have to deal with it yourself, you can hire 3HAC to come and handle it for you. Even better, sign up for our yearly maintenance plan and keep the entire process seamless. There is an investment for this plan, but remember that you’ll never have to worry every year about your HVAC unit. Most importantly, this can save you thousands throughout the summer months.

Easy Step #2
To save even more money this summer, think about letting your home be warmer by just a few degrees. Usually, this is the easiest solution, while still keeping your home and family comfortable. In addition, you can often program your thermostat so that when you leave the home, the heat goes up automatically. When family members get back home after school, work, or going out, you can program the thermostat to lower so that it is cool again. You can even program the thermostat to turn up a slight amount when you and your family go to sleep. By installing a few Eco-Friendly options to your home, you can maximize your conservation AND save money. For more information on how 3HAC can help you create a Smart Home, Click Here.
