How To Save Money On Utility Bills In The Tampa Heat

January 27, 2022

Our Red Cap Family is committed to providing you with ways to save on your utility bills throughout the year, especially during the hot summer months. It can be difficult to beat the Tampa heat, but we have a few solutions to keep you comfortable all year long.

Close The Curtains

On average, windows let in 90% of the sun’s heat, so it’s crucial to keep blinds and curtains in the warmest rooms closed, especially if your thermostat is nearby. Your thermostat will read these rooms and continue to attempt to cool down your home, running your utility bill up each day.

Invest In A Programmable Thermostat

Investing in a programmable thermostat is another great option to save money throughout the year. Programmable thermostats allow you to raise the temperature during peak hours when you won’t be home and lower it for when you return. You can also set temperatures by zones for rooms not frequently used.

Replace Your Air Filter

Regularly changing out your system’s filter is one of the easiest ways to maintain the health and vitality of your unit. Not only do dirty filters restrict airflow, but they also increase the chance of a future repair. Clean filters can lower your utility bills by 5-15% and increase your system’s lifespan.

Schedule Preventative Maintenance

Routine maintenance is key to keeping your system running efficiently. Our Red Cap technicians will ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency, detect any potential problems, and extend your system’s lifespan with proper HVAC solutions. When you replace your HVAC system, it’s crucial to schedule routine maintenance to keep everything running correctly and furthermore lower your utility bills.
