With summer just around the corner, there are a lot of sneaky expenses that will cause your electric bills to rise. With more time outdoors, you'll be using outdoor lighting a lot longer. There will also be a greater need for air conditioning, ceiling fans, and portable fans. These are just some of the reasons you'll want to tackle any hidden costs beforehand - that means anticipating repairs and assuring you have the most energy efficient options available.
Want to enjoy your summer, save money, and still stay cool? Then you'll want to check up on these key electrical maintenance issues beforehand!
Understanding Peak Usage
According to Eversource, people normally use the most energy between 12 p.m. through 8 p.m. This means using electricity during this time could cost you more. By avoiding any unnecessary energy usage during these hours, you could save on your energy bills!
To see the most savings, it is best to find out what the peak usage hours are in your area.
Air Conditioning Inspection
Is there anything impacting the performance of your air conditioning unit? This is a question an expert heating and cooling contractor can answer. While there is simple maintenance you could perform yourself, like cleaning or replacing filters, there are some things a professional can diagnose and improve before the heat kicks in, including:
- Inspecting the efficiency of your cooling unit
- Making any necessary air conditioning repairs
- Ductwork sealing, insulating, or repairing
- Air conditioning installation or replacement
- Inspecting and repairing the thermostat
The summer is also a good time to make any necessary repairs or upgrades to your heating unit. Replacing or repairing your heating unit could be significantly cheaper during the summer months and means you have less
to worry about during winter.
Repairing or Replacing Fans
An energy efficient solution to constantly blasting the air conditioner is running a fan during those mild, summer days. By using a fan whenever you can, you can lower your electricity costs and still have a comfortable, cool summer.
