Conserve Energy This Summer

Jun 8, 2022

Earth Day may have passed, but there’s no time like the present to begin making small lifestyle changes to help the environment. Energy conservation is especially important during the summer, as the A/C gets turned up to full blast and many people have more free time to spend at home. Here’s how you can conserve energy this summer to help the planet AND your wallet.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

We use copious amounts of energy in our daily lives, and it’s important to ensure we aren’t using any more than we need to. It’s important to schedule regular HVAC maintenance so you know your system is functioning smoothly and efficiently. You’ll also want to check your windows and doors for any cracks, leaks, or wear. When cool air is able to escape and warm air is able to intrude, your HVAC unit is forced to work harder than necessary to keep temperatures down. Remember to keep doors and windows closed and consider repairs if you notice drafts surrounding the area even when they’re shut up tight.

Turn the A/C Off

With that said, there’s also a lot of benefit to switching the air conditioning off and throwing the shutters wide open. As allergy season comes to a close and summer begins, you’re free to enjoy one of the most mild times of the year. If the temperature outside is within five degrees of your desired indoor climate, shut off the A/C and open the windows and doors to get some fresh air circulating. There’s no reason to spend more money on your energy bill to keep the HVAC system running when your backyard is already a comfortable 72 degrees. If your household is empty most of the day, consider scheduling your A/C to run only when you’re home or just before you arrive. This way you’re not keeping a cool house for nothing but the empty air for hours on end while still being able to enjoy a controlled climate at the end of the day. Evenings are also naturally cooler than midday, so your HVAC system won’t need to work as hard to get the temperature down. Another key note: always remember to shut off your A/C before you leave on a trip to avoid wasting days’ worth of energy and cash!

Use the Sunlight

Summer marks the beginning of long days and short nights, so it’s the perfect time to keep the lights off as much as possible. Open the curtains and let the sunshine in to lighten your electricity bill. Consider adjusting your sleep schedule to take full advantage of the plentiful daylight hours and sleep with the sun– you might be surprised at how much of a difference this makes for your physical health and mental wellbeing.

"I came home to discover that my air conditioning was not working, which sent me into an immediate panic because I had a baby who was going to be super cranky and I don't fare well sleeping without AC either. I sent out inquiries to several places and hoped for the best because I anticipated most HVAC companies would be slammed during the heatwave responding to similar calls. Fortunately, Sherry from Will-Air was prompt and courteous in replying to my dire request. She even texted me, because she didn't want to risk waking a baby with a phone call, and told me she could have a technician out the next day. The owner came out the next day and walked me through everything that was going on and was very professional. I was so impressed with their service that I've scheduled fall and spring maintenance with them."

"Will-Air spent the time to thoroughly check out both systems. We were pleased with the thoroughness of their preventative maintenance that we asked them to look at another problem we have had for years with the delivery of air throughout our home. They thoroughly explained a detailed quote to correct the problem. We were very pleased with their overall knowledge and communication and the details of their work, explanations, and written quotes."
