Reduce HVAC Costs

August 18, 2015: Reduce HVAC Costs

Think turning up the AC while you’re out of the house is helping your electric bill? Think again…

I used to think that turning up the temperature while our family was out of the house actually helped cut down on our electric bill. Then our AC broke and I found out the truth!

We actually used more energy and wasted more cash by fluctuating between temperatures than if we had just left our thermostat on a constant temperature all the time.

We’ve since learned our lesson, but do remember to close blinds while we’re gone during hot summer days to help keep cool yet open them when we’re home to avoid turning on lights.

And don’t forget, changing those air filters regularly will help keep costs down too!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
