Lower your AC bill with these Money Saving Tips


The best way to save money on air conditioning is turning it off.. Yeah, but why have you bought it in the first place? So use it, but use it smartly. Here are few tips for a lower AC bill.


Ensure an Efficient System

First of all, there are many technical problems that your AC can have and that make it operate inefficiently. Due to thеsе problems, the AC will work harder to reach the temperature you want and will be using more energy that you have to pay for. Remember to get your AC checked at least twice a year, just for being sure everything works fine.

Change Your Filters

Dirty air filters will cause stress on your AC. Change them often and your AC’s power usage will be reduced. When your filter is clogged, dirt and airborne particles may back up into your ductwork causing further inefficiency.

Check how to clean your AC filters on your own.

Get yourself a programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to keep perfect temperature when you are home. When you are asleep or away for more than 3 hours, there is no reason to have a temperature that no one is enjoying. You can install Melissa yourself for around 99 euro. Melissa allows you to control the temperature from your smartphone for much more efficient temperature monitoring. She saves you up to 25% of your power bill. Find how you can get Melissa here.

Turning the temperature down to lower the AC bill

Even a small adjustment on your thermostat can lead to a lower AC bill, so turn the temp down slightly and pay less.
Air conditioning costs contribute to about 43% of your monthly utility bill. Use these energy-saving measures to save on air conditioning bills and make sure your system is working efficiently.


6 most common AC problems

In order to assure your AC is working fine you need to call an AC repairman to check it from time to time. Let us show you the 6 most common AC problems you should fix immediately.

1.Filthy air filters

The filthy air filters may be one of the reasons your AC coil is freezing. They may also lower the efficiency of your AC.

2.You may be low on refrigerant

This is the chemical that your system uses to cool the air. If the levels of refrigerant are low, this could mean that there is a leak or some kind of problem with the refrigerant system. In 90% of the cases of low refrigerant there were found leaks. Fix them as soon as possible to make sure your AC is working properly.

3.Is the outside fan working well

The outside fan is responsible for conveying the heat from your home to the outside air. If the fan on the outside unit doesn’t perform correctly, proper heat transfer cannot take place and the air conditioning compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. Worse yet, it may cause internal damage to the compressor.

4.Electric control failure

The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently. Corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems. Therefore electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.

5.Be careful with the cables

If your Air Conditioner starts and stops by itself occasionally, you may have a wiring problem. Faulty AC wiring is very risky and brings a possibility of fire hazard.

6.Drainage problems.

When it's humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn't clogged and is draining properly. Room air conditioners may not drain properly if not mounted properly.
