Living in Green Valley, AZ, can really make you appreciate cool air. You want to have an AC system that works well while not costing you too much to run all summer long. Here are a few energy-efficient upgrades that can reduce your energy bills.
Have the Right Size AC for Your Home
Too much humidity in your home could be a sign that your air conditioner is too large for your space. Your air conditioner’s life will be cut short because of the extra work it has to do. If your AC unit is too small, it will have difficulty keeping every room evenly cooled. This, too, will run up your utility bills. Check with an HVAC service to see what the correct-size AC unit is for your home’s square footage.
Insulate Your Windows
Maybe you’ve heard of people using double-paned glass for hard winters to keep the cold air out. Insulated windows work the same way when you want to keep cool air in. Just like leaving the door open will let all the cold air out, regular windows can do that, too, through cracks and their single panes. Insulated windows will help cut down your energy bill by keeping the cool air in and the hot Green Valley, AZ, summertime air on the other side.
Ductless Air Conditioning
If you are considering remodeling your garage to make a little apartment or office, ductless air conditioning will allow you to keep it cooled efficiently. Ductless AC is quick to install. You can adjust the temperature remotely with your phone. You will likely lower your utility costs since it will use less energy. Ductless air conditioning can include a special filter to help keep out allergens.
