I suppose most of us who live in this region fully understand the most fundamental strategies out there for mitigating the high cost of Heating & Air Conditioning cooling in the summer.
If you live around here, Heating & Air Conditioning cooling during the summer time weeks are for sure the most costly of the year.
Our Winter time is thankfully quite mild. The heating costs are a mere shadow of what all of us pay for air conditioning. So it’s not a surprise to anybody that making sure the control component is reasonably set & keeping the condo tight are honestly important. Those many actions are the foundation for anyone attempting to significantly split the cost of the air conditioning during the summer. That said, there are plenty of other cost chopping strategies when it comes to dealing with Heating & Air Conditioning cooling. For one, make sure the drapes are pulled to negate the effect of direct sunlight heating. Then there are fans. Fans use less than one ninth the amount of energy that the air conditioning uses. And they honestly labor to trick the skin into feeling cooler. Cooking outdoors is yet another costs saving trick. Don’t add to the heat inside the condo by using the stove or the oven when at all possible. Cooking on the grill & then preparing cold sides are the way to go in the summer. Also, update the seasoned bulbs with modern light bulbs. The difference in heat emitted is staggering. And maybe hang out the scrub instead of using a dryer during the day. Again, why add to the heat & use that electricity when you don’t have to. Being creative with cost saving measures honestly adds up.
