4 Easy Ways to Lower Your Summer Electric Bill

Houston AC Repair specialist, Alpha 4 Real AC and Heating Service has released steps that will help homeowners cut down their monthly heating and cooling bills.

According to Bright Ashaka, a 30-year Houston, Texas air conditioning and heating repair veteran, customers will easily cut their monthly bills by nearly half if they follow these simple steps.

“I am continually amazed by how much money I see wasted by customers when I go out to their homes or business to fix their air conditioning systems. Most of the time, the problem is lack of attention on their part,” Ashaka said today in his office in Katy, Texas.

1. Maintain your AC System
Ashaka advised homeowners to make sure their air conditioning units are properly maintained and in good working condition.

“This is the most important step any homeowner or business owner can take to lower their monthly bills. You need to make sure your AC system is working correctly. This includes proper load balancing and correct Freon levels. Sometimes only a professional can determine the correct level and that is why it is important that you call someone to maintain your system,” he said.

2. Watch for Freon Leak
Ashaka said homeowners also need to be vigilant to observe their AC cooling levels as this could indicate a Freon leak.

“If your air conditioning suddenly stops cooling as usual or the cooling level drops dramatically, it could mean that you are losing Freon. Call an air conditioning service professional immediately. The longer you allow the leak to continue, the costlier it is for you in terms of repair and monthly bills,” Ashaka added.

3. Get Programmable AC Thermostat
The AC repair veteran advised homeowners to install programmable thermostat in their homes as they shut off your unit when no one is at home and turn them on in time to cool down the home before the family returns.

4. Turn off the light when not in use
“Also turning off the lights when no one is in the room, switching all your light bulbs to compact fluorescent light bulbs will lower your monthly bill since they produce less heat. Install a moisture sensor on your dryer. This will shut off your dryer when it senses that your clothes are dry and prevent wasting electricity or gas by over drying,” Ashaka added.
