After a cold winter, temperatures have already begun to creep into the 70s here in Fort Mill. It won’t be long before it’s time to switch over from heat to A/C completely! Here are R&B Climate Control’s top 5 spring energy saving tips for the Fort Mill, SC, area.
Change air filters
When it comes to HVAC maintenance, there’s no greater rule of thumb than the monthly filter change. A clean filter will increase your air conditioner’s efficiency, lowering your energy bills and repair costs this spring. Change your air filter once a month!
Programmable thermostat from R&B Climate Control
Is your thermostat saving you money? Programmable thermostats allow you to preset the temperature for different times of the day. This means you’ll pay for cooling only when you need it. Upgrade to a programmable thermostat from R&B Climate Control today!
Use ceiling fans this spring
Don’t forget to use your ceiling fans! Set your fans to forward (counterclockwise) to circulate cool air in your home. You can then raise the thermostat temperature without sacrificing comfort. Bonus tip: Set your fans to reverse to create a warming effect during fall and winter!
Seal your home
If your home is poorly sealed, you’ll waste money trying to cool it. Even the smallest hole can leak out cool air, raising your energy bills and overworking your A/C unit. Use caulk and weatherstripping around doors and windows to keep the cool air inside where it belongs.
