A simple tip to reduce air-conditioning bills


Did you know that one of the most inexpensive and effective ways to reduce your air conditioning costs is to adjust your thermostat setting?

You will save some power by doing the following (don’t believe me?  Just try it for a period, and if you cannot save any electricity, I will eat my hat!):

(1) Leave your ceiling fan on, at the lowest speed.

(2) Set the air-conditioner fan to blow at minimum speed, and set thermostat to a comfortable temperature.  Because of the “movement” of air due to (1) above, the air-conditioning system does not have to work so hard for the same impact.
