Top 5 Energy-Saving Tips for the Summer


As temperatures rise in the San Fernando Valley, keeping your home cool and comfortable while managing energy costs becomes crucial. At MightyServ, we understand the importance of energy efficiency in maintaining a pleasant indoor environment without breaking the bank.

1. Regular HVAC Maintenance

Your HVAC system works hard to keep your home comfortable, especially during the hot summer months. Regular maintenance is essential to ensure it operates efficiently. Schedule a comprehensive tune-up with MightyServ at least once a year. Our professional technicians will clean the system’s coils, check refrigerant levels, inspect ductwork for leaks or blockages, and make necessary adjustments to optimize performance. A well-maintained system not only consumes less energy but also lasts longer, saving you money on repairs and replacements in the long run.

2. Install a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat is a valuable tool for managing your home’s temperature based on your daily schedule. Set the thermostat to automatically adjust temperatures higher when you’re away from home or sleeping and lower them before you return or wake up. This prevents unnecessary cooling when no one is home, reducing energy consumption significantly. Advanced models even allow remote access via smartphone apps, giving you control over your home’s temperature settings from anywhere. By using a programmable thermostat effectively, you can optimize comfort while maximizing energy savings.

3. Seal Air Leaks

Air leaks around doors, windows, and other openings in your home can undermine the efficiency of your AC system by allowing conditioned air to escape and outdoor air to infiltrate. Inspect these areas regularly for drafts and gaps. Seal any leaks with weatherstripping, caulking, or foam insulation to improve your home’s insulation barrier. Focus on areas such as door frames, window sashes, and where pipes and wires enter the home. Properly sealed homes not only reduce energy consumption but also enhance comfort by maintaining consistent indoor temperatures throughout the year.

4. Use Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans can complement your AC system by circulating air and creating a wind-chill effect that helps you feel cooler at higher temperatures. During the summer, set your ceiling fans to run counterclockwise to push air downward, creating a cooling breeze. This allows you to raise your thermostat setting by a few degrees without sacrificing comfort. Remember that ceiling fans cool people, not rooms, so turn them off when you leave a room to save energy. Using ceiling fans strategically can reduce your reliance on air conditioning and lower your energy bills during the hottest months.

5. Upgrade to Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems

Consider upgrading to an energy-efficient air conditioning system, such as models with high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. These systems use less energy to cool your home effectively, resulting in lower utility bills and reduced environmental impact. MightyServ offers expert advice and installation services for upgrading to energy-efficient HVAC systems tailored to your home’s needs. Implementing these energy-saving tips not only helps you lower your energy bills but also contributes to reducing your home’s environmental impact.
