Is Your Home Ready for Spring?
Spring is here, and soon warmer weather will be at your front door in Pennsylvania. Is your home ready for spring? We made it through a long, cold winter, and you’re probably preparing your budget for the next warm season. We’re here to bring you some spring energy-saving tips from Eshenaurs.
Spring Energy-Saving Tips for PA:
1. Get a Programmable Thermostat.
If you don’t have a programmable thermostat in your home and you’re still using a manual thermostat, you could be missing out on savings. A programmable thermostat can help you save on energy bills. All you have to do is set it to raise the temperature when you’re not home or sleeping.
2. Use a Ceiling Fan.
Using a ceiling fan with your A/C system lets you raise your thermostat’s setting by 4°F without a reduction in comfort. Make sure you remember to turn off the fan when you leave the room.
3. Schedule Your A/C Tune-Up.
Getting annual maintenance on your air conditioner can do wonders for your energy bills. A tune-up from a certified technician from Eshenaurs will keep your A/C running at its peak efficiency and your home cool with less energy.
4. Turn on Bathroom Fans.
When you shower, remember to turn on your bathroom fan to draw out the heat and humidity in the room.
5. Start Grilling.
Cooking in your oven creates quite a bit of extra heat in your home. If you can, move your cooking outdoors and start grilling on a propane grill instead.
6. Use Window Treatments to Your Advantage.
When the sun is shining, open your window treatments to let in natural light instead of using electricity. When it’s hot or too warm outside, close your blinds or curtains to keep the extra heat out of your home, so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work any harder.
