Michigan and Ohio have beautiful, amazing summers filled with warm beaches, breathtaking shorelines, and fun with family and friends. But in the midst of all this warm weather, the surrounding Great Lakes can make the hot weather very humid. In this humidity, many take to turning on the air conditioner. We're going to talk about a few ways to keep you and your family comfortable, but also saving money on your energy bill.

One of the best things you can do to save money on air conditioning cost is to turn the thermostat up at night and when you are not home. This will help to ensure that the central ac system is not running while you are not home.  Programmable thermostats like the Carrier CÔR Thermostat are ideal because you can "set-it-and-forget it." to achieve savings. 

Another tip is to be sure to make sure that your filter for your air conditioner is clean. If it is dirty, visit your local Carrier Dealer here or go to Great Lakes Home Comfort to learn more.

In addition to a clean air filter, it is important to make sure that the air conditioner itself is clean. Keeping the outside condenser coils ( the outside coils on the air conditioner)  can be cleaned easily. To do so, be sure to get a garden hose, a set of safety goggles, and gloves. Shut off the power at your circuit breaker panel. Adjust the hose to a mist-like spray and gently rinse off any dirt, dust, and grime from the outside! It's that simple! and it can save you money!

In addition to these tips and tricks, planting leafy trees near windows can help to limit the amount and concentration of sunlight that shines into the home. This will reduce heat, and as such, reduce the need to have the Air Conditioner running all the time.

Finally, if your air conditioner is outdated, you can best increase savings by contacting an experience Carrier dealer. You can find one a dealer closest you by vising our dealer network here.
