AAA Cooling encourages homeowners to follow these tips to stay cool and comfortable, without spending an excessive amount on energy bills.

–          Replace old, inefficient air conditioning systems. Old AC systems had very poor energy efficiency standards, and the amount you will save every month with a new, energy efficient system will quickly make up for the cost of the upgrade. Don’t forget to have your system properly maintenanced by a professional to keep energy efficiency high and contact AAA Cooling today for air conditioner installation in Mesa.

–          Keep blinds and curtains closed during the day to block sunlight that will heat up your home. Consider purchasing insulated curtains that will block even more heat. A temperate house is easier to cool than a warm house.

–          Insulate your home. Poor insulation means poor energy efficiency. Put radiant barrier behind walls, insulate the attic, caulk around windows, and place weather stripping around doors.

–          Use ceiling fans to help cool the room you’re in. By using ceiling fans, you will feel cooler and be able to bump up the thermostat a few degrees so the AC doesn’t have to work as hard. Just remember to turn fans off when you leave the room, as they work to cool people directly.
