The most wonderful part about living in the south to me is the warm weather. I’ve really never been one who cared for the chilly temperatures much, so I thoroughly enjoy being in a city where the rapidly increasing temperatures reach the nineties on a frequent basis. The only real issue is the sizzling weather comes with higher energy bills! During summertime months I have began noticing that I overuse our Air Conditioner. I actually need to figure out some acceptable ways to sustain energy a little bit better, yet the one thing I know I could have done is have an Air Conditioner specialist come out making sure that the windows as well as the doors are sealed extremely well. This would keep air from flowing out of our house, and I’m sure it would keep my Air Conditioner from having to work so diligently to keep the temperature down around the house. I’m sure there are more things that I could be doing, so when a neighbor of mine recently mentioned to me that she uses a smart technology temperature control to run her Air Conditioner. This means that she can modify her temperature control using an app on her cell phone. If she ever goes away from the house and forgets to change the temperature, she can do so from her phone preventing the cooling system from running when she’s not using it. I’m not certain how much it would cost to have one of those installed where I live, but I bet it would be well worth the investment in the long run! I believe I’ll give our local Heating and Air Conditioner company a call later this week. There’s no justification in putting these things off any longer. I need to reduce my energy use, plus these all seem prefer good ways to do just that.
