Beat the Heat Without Breaking the Bank

After you’ve had a central air conditioning system tuned up or installed by one of the NATE certified technicians at Air Treatment Company, there are still more ways to keep your cool this summer.

The Thermostat

We can replace a traditional thermostat with a programmable thermostat. Not only will it allow you to program the temperature in your house for a week, it will also save you money. In the summertime, it’s a good idea to set the thermostat to 78°F. It will save you between 5 and 8% on your energy costs.

Fan the Flames
A fan can be a great addition to your current HVAC system. Fans allow air to circulate throughout your home. Although it will not make the air colder, it will help air flow from room to room.

Close the Curtains

Direct sunlight and heat from the sun can raise the temperature in your home. That’s why it is best to close the curtains or blinds during the peak hours of the day.

All of these tips and tricks can be used to lower your energy bills. Here at Air Treatment Company, we are committed to keeping you and your family cool and comfortable this summer. If you are interested in speaking with one of representatives about how you can increase efficiency and decrease your monthly bills, give us a call at (703) 270-0881.
