There are many myths about saving money on your air conditioning bill. It’s not that you can’t save money, it’s that the advice is not always the best. For example, many people will tell you to turn off your air conditioning while you are away. While this may be effective if you are gone for more than a day, it often adds additional stress to your air conditioning stress instead of helping. This is because the air conditioning system will have to restart when you get back.
Further, it will have to work hard to bring the temperature down again.
However, this can be effective if you have a programmable thermostat. These thermostats all you to schedule your air conditioning to run at certain timers or under certain conditions. While away, an air conditioning contractor will tell you to have your air conditioning run at five to seven degrees warmer than while you are home. This way, it does not have to work extra hard to catch up and won’t have to be turned off completely. In the end, you can certainly save money by doing this.
