The hot temperatures of summer bring with them higher cooling costs. By using your air conditioning system in the right way, however, you can both keep your home comfortable and cut down your energy bills. For example, when setting your thermostat, make sure to set the fan to auto mode. Setting the fan to auto ensures that it only works when your air conditioner is actually producing cold air. This can in turn save energy. It is also a good idea to make sure that your thermostat is set at 78 degrees or higher. 78 degrees Fahrenheit provides a balance between comfort and cost that will help you stay cool with costing you too much.
