How to Improve Energy Efficiency in the Summer


Are you tired of having high energy bills all summer? Do you wonder what you can do differently this year to lower that bill? If you are in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, or Panama City, Peaden is here to help you. We are energy experts and we want to assist you in managing your energy bills. For years, we have offered electrician services in these areas and are here to help if you need these services as well.

Turning Up the Thermostat

If you want to improve your energy efficiency this summer, you should turn up the thermostat. It is best to have it at about 78 degrees, but definitely have it to a tolerable level. You can try out different degrees to see what works best for you and your family members.

Checking the Filters

Another way to improve the energy efficiency in the summer is to check the filters regularly. You want to make sure the airflow is moving efficiently through the home. If the filters are dirty, this is going to prevent proper airflow. Peaden can help you replace the filters if need be.

Getting a Tuneup on the AC Unit

If you want to improve the energy efficiency throughout your home this summer, another way to do that is by getting a tuneup on your AC unit. Peaden has professional AC repair workers who can provide this tuneup service for you.

Proper Lighting

You can use LED bulbs to improve the energy efficiency in your home as well. These bulbs will help to lower your energy bill by around 75 percent if you use them all throughout your home.

Sealing the Doors and Windows

Our Peaden electrician experts also recommend that you seal your doors and windows. If you have high energy bills in the summer, it may be because there is air leaking out of the home. You can reduce your energy bills by having a professional seal up the doors and windows.

Unplugging Electronics

If there are electronics you aren’t using regularly, you should always unplug them. You may be paying more than $100 each year because you have electronics plugged in that aren’t being used. This standby power can be reduced significantly just by unplugging the electronics.

Checking the Efficiency of Your Refrigerator

Many homes don’t have a highly efficient refrigerator. This may be something you want to check on. If the refrigerator is too cold, it may be costing you a lot more money on your energy bill.

Peaden has many professional electricians who can help you to lower your energy bills for the summer. These are some of the tips to help you out this summer and every summer from here on out.
