Something I had to learn the taxing way once I became a homeowner was how to make our beach cabin more energy efficient. I learned that in order to make our beach cabin more energy efficient I had to keep our cooling system energy efficient. I thought I would share some tips with you that I had to learn the taxing way throughout the years. First off, always remember to set your temperature control on high while you are away from the house. This will keep the air conditioner from running all the time when no 1 is home! Next, it is important to keep the sunlight from shining into your home. The blackout curtains are awesome in keeping the a/c running efficiently! Check to make sure you have fantastic insulation in your beach cabin and have your local air conditioner business send a business to check it out if you are in question. Every month change your air filters as wipe air filters will keep the a/c running smoothly. Be sure that you keep all of your appliances away from the temperature control. The heat from the appliances can cause the a/c to run when it actually doesn’t need to and ceiling fans are an awesome way of keeping the room cool without running the Heating and Air Conditioning system typically. Another thing to do is to schedule repair and repairs with your Heating and Air Conditioning dealer. Finally, update your ancient a/c if you begin to have problems with the efficiency of the system. I hope that these tips will allow you to run your beach cabin and a/c more efficiently can keep your costs down in the long run.
