4 Tips for Saving Energy in Nashville This Summer 

Spring is wonderful for more than a few reasons: flowers are blooming, you can open up windows for crisp air and your utility bill is often at its most economical. That’s because you’re not using your heater or air. 

But as mercury begins to increase, so do your energy costs. Here are a few ideas for saving energy in Birmingham and keeping payments down. 

1. Call for Yearly AC Maintenance 

Giving your AC system a seasonal maintenance appointment can help it work more efficiently and reduce costs. Replacing your air filter will help keep utility costs less expensive. 

If your air conditioning equipment has experienced better days, spring is a smart time to upgrade it. The energy-saving options in newer air conditioning systems is a definite plus in keeping your utility bill down. 

2. Turn Down Your Thermostat 

There’s a straightforward way you can save up to 10% on heating and cooling charges. Just turn your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours each day. 

Figuring out how to effectively use your thermostat is the best way to reduce energy bills in the summer. 

  • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Consider it this way, the lower the difference between outdoor temperatures and indoor temperatures, the less expensive your home comfort bill will be. 
  • When you’re out and about, set the thermostat to a significantly higher temperature or shut it off. There’s no reason to cool an empty house. 

3. Try Other Methods to Cool Your Space

You can turn to a few other things to help keep your residence cool: 

  • Use a ceiling fan—By using a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no reduction in comfort. Have your fan spin counterclockwise when it’s warm out, which drives cool air upward. This moves cool air more evenly when you’re in the room. 
  • Keep blinds drawn—Sunlight quickly converts to heat as it comes through windows. Keep your house cooler by drawing blinds and curtains when you’re not staying in sunny areas. 

4. Consider Buying a Smart Thermostat

You’re out and about and suddenly realize you forgot to turn up the thermostat. Then you fret about it the full day! 

Smart thermostats learn your schedule and move the temp when you’re out and about to help you save money. You can also change the temp from anywhere with your phone.
