7 Ways to Survive the Texas Summer on a Budget

7 Ways to Survive the Texas Summer on a Budget

Master Tech Service Corp. knows exactly how hard it can be to stay cool in the summertime. We also know how tough that can be when you are working on a budget. So, what can you do to make sure that your family is safe and comfy in the Texas heat without increasing your electric bill?

One of the best and most efficient ways to save money in the summer is to make sure you have an energy-efficient air conditioning system. Did you know that properly cleaning your air filters will keep your HVAC system running smoothly and effectively lower your electricity bill? This happens by preventing dust and debris from blocking the vents in your home and prevent blockage of air. If your air filters are dirty, the AC system must work harder and use more energy to provide you with the same level of comfort.

It is best to hire a local contractor like Master Tech Service Corp. to help service your air conditioning system and make sure it is operating efficiently. Our certified technicians make sure that your outdoor coils are clean, we check voltage connections, and make sure the refrigerant is at proper levels.

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that you set your thermostat to 78°F (26°C) in the summer when you are home for maximum efficiency. If you still feel like warm at this temperature, consider running a ceiling fan at the same time as your AC system when you are in the room.

According to Energy.gov, here are 7 ways to stay cool without breaking the bank:

  • Use your windows to gain cool air and keep out heat
  • Operate your thermostat efficiently
  • Use fans and ventilation strategies to cool your home
  • Keep your cooling system running efficiently
  • Don’t heat your home with appliances and lighting
  • Keep hot air from leaking into your home
  • Lower your water heating costs
