Living in Florida means beautiful beaches, sunny days, and, of course, scorching summer heat. While the temptation to blast the air conditioner all day is strong, it can lead to hefty energy bills that can put a damper on the summer fun.


But fear not! The experts at Harrington Air Conditioning are here to explore some cost-efficient ways to beat the summer heat so you can keep cool without breaking the bank.


Harness the Power of Fans

Fans are an affordable and energy-efficient way to circulate air and create a cooling breeze in your home. Use ceiling fans to distribute cool air from your cooling system more effectively and consider adding portable fans to target specific areas where airflow may be limited.


Seal and Insulate

Keep the heat out and the cool air in by sealing any gaps or cracks around windows, doors, and vents. The last thing you want is for the cool air that you are paying for to slip right through the cracks…literally! Adding weather stripping and caulking can prevent warm air from infiltrating your home, reducing the workload on your cooling system and lowering energy costs.


Embrace the Shade

Beat the heat by using shade to your advantage. Planting trees or installing shades or blinds can help block sunlight, keeping your home cooler naturally. Also, consider strategically placing shade-loving plants around your outdoor living spaces to create natural cooling zones.


Optimize Your Thermostat

Investing in a smart thermostat is a great way to stay comfortable and save some cash this summer. These devices allow you to set your thermostat to a moderate temperature when you’re home and raise it a few degrees when you’re away or asleep to save energy.


Schedule Regular System Maintenance

This summer don’t overlook the importance of regular AC maintenance in keeping your system running efficiently and cost-effectively. By scheduling annual maintenance with a professional technician, you can sure your unit is clean and free of any issues that could lead to decreased performance or costly repairs.


Don’t let the Florida heat drain your energy or inflate your utility bills this summer. By implementing these cost-efficient strategies, you can stay cool and comfortable while keeping your budget in check.
