Turning on the AC can be an expensive decision, but there aren’t many other choices when it’s so hot outside! Here are some ways to save money and still stay cool this summer!

Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat can change the temperature in your home when it most makes sense and when you don’t need it to be particularly cool inside. This saves you money even when you’re not thinking about your A/C. These also allow you to adjust the temperature settings in your home from an app, so you can turn up the heat when you’re gone and still return to a cool house.

Use a Fan

Ceiling fans can make rooms feel up to 10 degrees cooler without lowering the A/C temperature at all! Since fans also use less energy than your A/C, you can stay cool without breaking the bank. If you need help installing ceiling fans, we might know some people who can help!

Close Your Blinds

Sure, the summer light is amazing, but all of that sun can heat your home up fast. Try to open blinds in parts of your home that aren’t getting direct sunlight and change which ones are open throughout the day, as the sun moves. This lets the light in without letting the sun’s rays beat down on you and your home!

You don’t have to roast this summer, but you also don’t have to break the bank! Use these tips and call us for more ways to save all summer long. And if you can’t take the heat, give Valley City Mechanical for AC repair or installation services in Byron Center, MI!
