How to Run Your Air Conditioner Efficiently for Winter Savings

When the weather finally makes the big switch from blazing hot to delightfully cool, you may start to get savings on the mind. After all, the more money you save, the more you’ll have for holiday gifts, a great New Year’s Eve outfit and, of course, those pumpkin spice lattes with extra whipped cream. So when you take a break from clipping coupons and preparing your meals for the week (fast food expenses add up quickly!), take a moment to think about an often overlooked or untapped resource for savings - your air conditioner. When your HVAC unit is maintained and used correctly, you can save up to 30% off your energy bills. A few small changes can put a chunk of the money you normally spend on energy back into your pocket.
