You might be quite comfortable right now, but in a few very short months, those temperatures will be hovering in the 80s and 90s. And the humidity makes you feel like you are swimming in a bowl of miso soup. This is when you crank your air conditioner to eleven and hope it holds out so you don’t have to call your Oxford air conditioning repair service. Then you get the energy bill in the mail and almost suffer a stroke as it is over the top expensive. Take a deep breath, here are a few tips you can engage that will bring that energy bill down.

The first thing you want to do is slap a portable air conditioner in your bedroom window. It might also make sense to mount one in any other room where you spend a lot of time. Look, if you are spending hours in the family room watching movies or reading, there really is no need to run the central air conditioning unit. Window units do a fine job keeping individual rooms cool and cost a lot less to run.

It may not seem like a big deal, but even just basic annual maintenance will have your air conditioner working more efficiently. Clogged filters make your air conditioning unit work up to 15 percent harder.

Rearranging your furniture can help save energy. That’s right, furniture that obstructs air conditioning vents are cooling your chair and sofa but not the air.

And there you go, a few great ways to save on energy costs this summer.
