Top 4 Tips to Save Money & Stay Cool This Summer

tips to stay cool

Here are some quick tips for Castle Rock and the surrounding area homeowners on how to save money this summer cooling your Colorado home, plus reduce the stress on your A/C system and hopefully increase its longevity!

  1. Change your A/C filter every 3 months, AND do a visual check once a month. How do I know when to change my filter? Hold the used filter up to the light. If you can’t see through it, it’s time to replace it!
  2. Set a different temperature on you’re A/C unit when you are at home versus when you are away from home. When you’re home, try to keep the A/C at the same, constant temperature –between 71 and 77 degrees F – whatever feels most comfortable. When you’re gone for the day, increase it by 5 degrees. A simple 5 degree increase for 8 hours a day can save up to 10% in your energy bill every year!
  3. During the hottest part of the day, use alternate, low-cost methods to stay cool, such as:
    • Use ceiling fans. They are very low cost and keep you comfortable.
    • Shut blinds and drapes during the hottest part of the day
    • Avoid running the stove, oven and dishwasher
    • Open windows, especially at night for ventilation and circulating the cooler air
  4. Set a different temperature when you are home versus away.
    • HOME-When at home, keep the A/C at the same temperature between 71 and 77 F.
    • AWAY-When you’re away, increase it by 5 degrees. This can save up to 10% annually when you make this change 8 hours a day!
  5. Get your A/C checked annually by a professional to keep your warranty active, prevent safety issues, and keep your family safe and comfortable.
