One of the first ideas when it comes to saving money on air conditioning expenses would be to set the thermostat as high as comfortably possible. This will help lower your bills. Using house fans as well as attic fans can also keep your home cool and lower your costs for air conditioning.

Turning off the A/C when you are not occupying the house is another money saving tip.  Not reducing the temperature to a cooler setting can also save you money. It won’t cool the house any faster and will just cause your expenses to rise.

Fan speeds can also make a difference when it comes to saving money on air conditioning expenses. You use a high speed except for when it is humid. Humid temperatures will need a slower fan speed than a normal circumstance.

Have you thought about using ceiling fans to help cool your home? They decrease power usage while keeping your home cool. Keeping curtains open during early morning and overnight can also save you money on cooling bills. Make sure your unit is in the shade so it doesn’t have to work as hard.
