Tips for Keeping Cool Without Breaking the Bank

Posted On: April 9, 2014

Finally, the dark, chilly days of winter are behind us and the springtime is slowly creeping in. Before we know it, summer will be here and everyone around you will go from complaining about their heating bills to their overheating body—if it isn’t one thing, it’s another! Thankfully, if you start preparing early you’ll be able to stay cool and avoid spending too much time or money doing so.

There’s an App for That

There are several apps that you can use to manage your home cooling system remotely. We all want to walk into a 70-degree house at the end of a long workday (surely, the pets at home would agree), but that would cost a fortune! Thanks to the advancement of technology, you can now control your thermostat over the Internet (and on your phone) to control the temperatures throughout the day. You can purchase these from us and one of our professionals will install it for you! The devices that we carry are top-of-the-line (far superior to anything you might pick up in a hardware store) and our expertise will ensure that they last for years to come.

Color Coordination

Do a visual scan of all doors and windows in your house. Is anything outside painted a dark color, such as your door? Anything black or dark blue will suck up the heat and just make everything feel hotter. Light colors are the best, especially for window shades or blinds. Thankfully, a can of paint and some new blinds are incredibly easy on the wallet.

Maintain your Cooling Unit

You’ll want to change your air conditioning filter at least once a month during heavy usage. If not maintained, you could lose efficiency on the unit and your costs will hike. Finally, if your air conditioning unit is out of warranty or old enough that it might be on the fritz, call our reliable AC replacement company in Utah and take advantage of our early bird savings, manufacturer rebates and utility rebates. The last thing you want is to have to relocate the family for a weekend or run out and buy a window unit until your central air is fixed; better to be prepared than in denial.

We’ll be happy to replace your air conditioner, but don’t let it get to that! Make sure your AC is serviced or repaired by us. Take advantage of our $25 off promotion here. Don’t sweat it this summer in Utah; give us a call to come look at your air conditioner: (801) 416-2215(801) 416-2215.
