1. Check your thermostat
We’ve said it before but it bears repeating: when the temperature changes, always check your thermostat. To reduce your energy bills, try to set it to a temperature that is as close to the outdoor temperature as possible.
2. Don’t crank the AC
Cranking your air conditioning to a very low temperature when you first turn it on doesn’t actually help cool your home any faster, it just costs more money! The best thing to do is to dial in your desired temperature, set it and forget it.
3. Use an interior fan
Circulating cold air by using an interior fan will help to create a more even indoor temperature, resulting in less “adjustments” throughout the day as you move from room to room.
4. Keep your thermostat clear
Avoid placing appliances that give off heat near your thermostat, as they can interfere with its ability to read temperatures accurately.
5. Consider an upgrade
