Summer season in Brevard County is hot and humid, which means that your air conditioning cooling cost can skyrocket. But don't worry there are simple steps to take to save on electricity and save money on your AC bills.
We would recommend making sure your air conditioner is maintained and running efficiently.

One simple way to improve the efficiency of your AC is to invest in a smart thermostat like the Ecobee. The Ecoobee thermostat will allow you to set the temperature higher when you're away from your house and set it to different temperature settings when you're going to bed at night. You don't want to waste money cooling your empty house. You have the option set the thermostat to turn on right before you get home. This way your home is already comfortable when you walk in the door. The Ecobee can be controlled by remote temperature sensors and through an app on your smartphone, which can will increase energy efficiency.
Another tip is to turn on the fans in your house to circulate air in your home. Ceiling fans are great to help circulate the cooler air from your AC system. This might allow you to raise the temperature setting on your thermostat a few degrees without sacrificing comfort level.
Besides using a smart thermostat and fans, It's a good idea to make sure your home is well-insulated and the windows are sealed. Air leaks from the outside of your home or attic can cause your air conditioner to work harder and run longer than needed. This will increase your cooling cost which means higher energy bills for you to pay. If you seal gaps around your windows and doors and insulate your attic as well as have Quality Comfort's team seal up your air conditioning duct system. This can help prevent drafts and keep your home comfortable and more energy efficient.
