When it comes to fall, Florida does it the best. While most Americans are stuck raking leaves and trying to keep warm, we get to watch football from our favorite beach bars. For Florida, fall is just like a more mild summer with less humidity.
Because of Florida’s climate, fall also brings some unique opportunities to save money on our utility bills. If you’re looking to spend less, then follow these fall energy saving tips.
Turn Off the AC
Most Floridians can’t live without their AC, and for good reasons. Those unbearably hot Florida summers wouldn’t be manageable without the cool and refreshing comfort brought to us by our air conditioner. However, one of the best parts of fall in Florida is that, while it’s still warm, it is no longer unbearably hot. Save on your energy bill and go sans AC for a few months. Not only will your wallet thank you, you’ll be helping out the environment.
Keep It Open
Fall brings us many great things, such as football, pumpkin spice lattes, and apple picking. But there is one aspect to fall that trumps them all; it marks the end of mosquito season. This means that you can finally feel safe going outside, and leaving the doors open again. Save on the energy bill this fall, and leave your doors and windows open to save on cooling cost during the day. A nice breeze is the perfect way to keep your home comfortable. And now that it’s fall, you can do so without fear of pesky little bugs infesting your home.
To many peoples surprise, it does actually start getting cold in Florida, especially at night. But don’t waste your money heating up your house on those chilly nights. Instead, bundle up with some extra blankets to keep warm. There is no better feeling than cuddling up with some cozy blankets and you’ll be saving your hard earned cash.
Fall Maintenance Checkup
When you do decide to turn on your air conditioner, make sure that it is working properly. You should have your entire HVAC system professionally serviced twice a year; once in the fall and once in the spring. Having regular, preventative AC maintenance is the best way to ensure that your system is efficiently and cost effectively running. Not to mention, having your system regularly checked is the best way to prevent small problems from turning into expensive repairs. Having your fall AC maintenance checkup is the number one way to save your money this fall.
