HVAC Money Saving Tips
Floridians spend a lot for air conditioning. According to the Energy Information Administration, Florida households spend an average of $1900 annually on electricity — which is 40% higher than the national average. There is no reason that Floridians should have to spend this much just to be comfortable. With simple upgrades and solutions, it is possible to slash cooling costs and help the planet too.

It Pays to Upgrade
A common belief in Florida is that it is expensive to upgrade an air conditioning system to a more energy-efficient system. However, this is not the case. The price of energy-efficient HVAC systems have dropped drastically in the past few years. There are also numerous opportunities for tax credits and rebates for switching to eco-friendly air conditioning systems, which can help offset the cost of buying a new AC system. Over the long term, upgrading almost always makes financial sense. If you have an older AC system in place, upgrading can cut cooling costs by over 50%.
Simple Solutions for Saving Money
There are other ways to save money on air conditioning aside from upgrading your system. Simple, low-cost fixes can make a major difference and slash air conditioning costs by 20% or more. Some of these include:
• Redesigning ductwork
• Replacing ducts
• Sealing and insulation
• Programmable thermostats
• Changing filters
• Vent cleaning
• Energy zoning
• Venting laundry machines
• Installing complementary units like ceiling fans
