Planting shade trees that grow fast around your home will also split down on the amount of work your A/C has to do.
I grew up in the southernmost area of this state During the 1974s. Air conditioning at that time was not what it is today. Nowadays, there are all sorts of amazing and improving heating as well as A/C technology, back in those afternoons there were really only more than one choices as far as AC is concerned, you could either have a window a/c unit, or you could have Central heating and cooling. We did have central heating and cooling, however our mother did not make really much money after the death of our dad, so we had to save wherever we could! When you live in a really southern area where the control component often reaches triple digits, and you don’t have a lot of money, you tend to learn tricks and techniques to make the best of it, then some superb ways to keep the home cool without turning down your AC control component include the following. Number one, cover up the windows. Nothing beats blocking the sun to give your A/C a break. If you can afford solar films for your windows, great. If you can’t, at least put room darkening curtains or even bedspreads over the windows so that your a/c can work less. Number more than one, get some shade. Planting shade trees that grow fast around your home will also split down on the amount of work your A/C has to do. The last work your AC has to do, the less currency it’s going to cost you. Number more than two, set your control component as high as you can stand it in the summer and as low as you can stand it in the winter. When you set your control component this way your a/c will not come on as frequently, and in the winter your gas furnace will not come on as frequently either. Where we live, it is easy not to have to use the gas furnace in the winter!
