Lower Your Home’s Thermostat

The holidays means holiday parties and celebrations with family and friends. If your loved ones are traveling to your Madison County home this holiday, don’t forget to lower the thermostat! Many people forget to do this, and their house becomes stuffy and overheated with the gathering of people and use of appliances like the oven. Reducing the temperature will help lower your energy bills—make use of your oven and leave it opened once you’re done using it! Why not make use of the extra heat source?

Run Heat-Generating Appliances at Night

Appliances like your washer and dryer or your dishwasher produce extra heat with in use. Instead of running these during the day, run them overnight. If started midday, the extra heat generated by the appliances can cause your home’s cooling system to kick on—even when it isn’t warm outside! By running these systems at night when it’s cooler, your AC unit is less likely to turn on.

Schedule an HVAC Inspection
