Options to Lower Your Cooling Bills
If your home’s upper floor always seems warmer than the lower floors, or if you have rooms that are always too hot in the summer, contact us to see if zoning your cooling system could help. A zoned HVAC system can help reduce energy use and save on cooling costs while keeping temperatures even from room-to-room.
How zoned cooling works:
Rather than using two or more HVAC systems to regulate the temperature of a multi-story home separately, a single zoned system can improve comfort in both small and large houses. The house is divided into zones, each with their own individually-controlled thermostat. Dampers control the airflow for each zone, which is customized for the home. Zones can be configured so each bedroom is at an ideal temperature for sleeping, the home gym stays cool year-round, and there’s no energy wasted on unnecessary air conditioning for seldom-used rooms.
Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner
If your home has an addition, sun room or converted garage that’s hard to cool, a ductless mini-split air conditioner could be a great alternative to a window AC. A mini-split system has an outdoor unit consisting of a compressor and condenser along with an indoor air-handler unit. As the name implies, they work without air ducts, so they’re a perfect add-on for homes with central air conditioning. Aspen Aire is a MidAmerican EnergyAdvantage Partner, so we’re qualified to install ductless mini-split systems that qualify for MidAmerican Energy’s rebate program.
Energy-Saving Alternatives to Central Air Conditioners
A heat pump is a cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly option for keeping homes cool in warmer months. Aspen Aire repairs and installs both geothermal and-air source heat pumps. You can take advantage of tax credits for installing an energy-efficient heat pump, and rebates are available for MidAmerican Energy customers.
We install, repair and replace geothermal systems. Iowa homeowners looking to cut energy costs are frequently turning to these ground-source heat pumps for efficient cooling during the summer.
What is the ideal temperature to set my thermostat on in the summer?
Assuming you want to save energy so you can lower your electric bill during the summer, set the thermostat to 78℉. If this is a higher temperature than you’re used to, using a ceiling fan will create a cooling effect to help you feel more comfortable. Installing a smart thermostat will allow you to automatically raise the temperature in your home during the day when you’re gone and then lower it at night when you’re sleeping.
How can I lower my energy bill in the summer?
There could be several reasons running your air conditioner is driving up your electric bill every summer. The simplest is a clogged air filter, which can block the cool air from flowing through your house. If changing the air filter doesn’t help your AC run more efficiently, have it inspected and cleaned. An AC tune-up will make sure your cooling system is in good working order. And finally, it could be time to install a new air conditioner that’s more energy-efficient. Aspen Aire’s air conditioning technicians can evaluate your AC system and recommend ways to lower your cooling bills.
