10 Easy Ways to Lower AC Bill

10 Easy Ways to Lower AC Bill The cooling season is here. That means that very soon a good chunk of your bills will be about the air conditioner. Here are some tips on how to lower AC bill this summer.

What to Do to Lower AC Bill?

  • Seal your windows for any leaks. Poorly sealed windows let the air out — including the cool air from the AC. So your unit will have to work much harder to provide fresh air in the house.
  • Use the programmable thermostat. They can adjust the temperature automatically when you are sleeping or away from the house. According to the Department of Energy, this will help you save up to 10% annually.
  • Don’t skip the maintenance for your AC. Regular check-ups by your contractor (we hope it is FUSE 😉) keep your system running at full capacity. This will save you a lot in the longer run.
  • Reduce cooking indoors. On especially hot days it is better not to use ovens as they generate a lot of heat. Summer is perfect for cooking outdoors — go get that barbecue, tiger!
  • Cover your windows. Shades, curtains, blinds — whatever looks good with your interior design. According to the DOE, when it’s hot, about 76% of sunlight on windows enters in the form of heat.
  • Plant some trees around the house. Leafy trees will also prevent the sunlight entering the house. Trees are also great for the environment!
  • Install an attic fan. The sun hits your roof hard warming up the attic and the whole house. A fan in the attic will help blow the hot air away.
  • Insulate your walls and attic. They can also be the sources of the leaks. With the brand new insulation the energy efficiency will go up and help you save on the AC.
  • Divide your house in zones. You don’t need the room nobody uses to be cool. Get a zoning system and use the AC only where people currently hang out. It’s super efficient!
  • Get an efficient AC system. The most efficient air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid 1970s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20% to 40% of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a more efficient model.

We chose Fuse to do the HVAC portion of our home remodel and we're very happy with their work! They installed a full Mitsubishi Mini-split heat pump system all throughout our house in 6 rooms. It was a massive job and they did the work relatively quickly and efficiently. The supervisor, Maxim, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Out of several bids that we got, theirs was the only one that gave us everything we wanted at a competitive cost. We'd be happy to recommend Fuse! We also had Fuse Electric work on the electrical portion of our home remodel, for which I wrote up a separate review.

We got our duct work completely replaced in our 50 yr old home. They recommended the work, other companies didn't do this much due diligence and mentioned about asbestos but FUSE technicians went step ahead and climbed into attic and our crawl space to ensure there were no asbestos to begin with. Honest people and very competitive if not best quote I got. Moreover the installer, David and Jeremy worked 2 long days non stop to get work done at our home with 100% satisfaction. David explained everything to me and provided other recommendations for future. He is the most honest technician I have encountered in so long. Because of David I wouldn't hesitate to work with FUSE again. Thank you for such a great work. Very happy and highly recommend FUSE!!

The technical crews were excellent; very knowledgeable and capable. They were able to do our HVAC, water heater and ductwork replacement even when faced with several unexpected and very challenging situations. David in particular worked some very long hours to get everything installed correctly. The administration side had a few glitches, but everything worked out OK. I would recommend them, but if you are eligible for the Penninsula Clean Energy interest free loan, be sure to apply for it before the work is completed.

Exceptional service from FUSE HVAC! They installed a Mitsubishi HVAC system in our home, and we couldn't be happier. The team was professional, knowledgeable, and efficient throughout the process. Our home is now perfectly comfortable year-round, thanks to their expertise. From consultation to installation, everything was seamless and hassle-free. Highly recommend FUSE HVAC for anyone looking for top-notch HVAC solutions!

Fuse HVAC installed Mitsubishi Heat pump in my house and completed the project on 31st March 2024. David and Jeremy started the project and David finished the installation. David worked Saturday and Sunday until 11 PM to complete the work. It took 4 1/2 days. I am very happy with the work that David performed. I was watching the process of installation of the pump and was very satisfied to see that after finishing each step David will spend 10-15 min inspecting the work that he did to make sure that there was no mistake. The result was that during pressure testing to check for gas leakage or when the heat pump was run there was no unanticipated issue. The new ductwork that was installed by FUSE passed the HERS test. FUSE is also installing the attic fan to keep the air circulation going and keep the attic cooler. FUSE was referred to by my friend who used them for installing a similar heat pump and although they were a little more expensive than a few quotes I got from other vendors, I decided to go with them based on my friend's recommendation. I had made a right choice! My only criticism for FUSE is they are not able to estimate the time that it will take to finish the project. They told me it will be done in 3 days but it took 4 1/2 days. My project needed the air handler to be moved to the attic but because the space which had the gas heater was too narrow for the air handler. On the whole it was a good experience working with FUSE. They kept us warm for two days with heater fans and David worked Easter Sunday until 11 PM to install and start up the system without hurrying up at any step to get the installation completed earlier. A big thanks to him and to his assistant Jeremy!
