Our Greater Lehigh Valley weather is already on the warm-up, meaning you’ve probably already seen some of those burgeoning energy costs. But before the sting really starts to set in, the experts at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric have some good news for you! There is a fast, easy, and totally stress-free way to keep those costs low. Want to know how? Follow along!
More cooling equals more cost, right? But do you know exactly how much a single degree can really mean? Because it’s actually quite a lot more than most expect. Each and every degree you set your system higher accounts for a whopping eight to 12 percent increase in power usage! That means each degree you set your system higher can set you back a big buck or two, and it will add up in a real hurry.
The hard part is that there’s no real definitive answer here. Some homeowners find 75 degrees perfectly palatable, while others aren’t going to be happy if the temp hits higher than 70 degrees. The best advice you can get is to try to set it as high as is comfortable to maximize both your comfort and your savings. However, this is where the good news comes in:
There’s a bunch of ways to be more comfortable in your home and to reduce cooling costs through thermostat control! You can have it all—your ideal setting and your savings. All it takes is a little know-how.
There’s a best option here, but we’ll get to that. In the meantime, here’s some freebies that take basically nothing at all:
Wish there was a way to maximize comfort and savings in your home? Installing effective window treatments is a simple solution! There are a variety of window treatment options for you to choose from—including standard curtains, blackout curtains, and more!
Did you know 10-25% of thermal energy loss goes out the windows? Blackout curtains can trap heat in during the winter and keep light and heat out during the summer. They can even curtail this loss by a 25%, easily reducing your utility bills!
