Saving Money on Cooling Costs at Our Apartments for Rent in Mount Dora, FL
Summer in Florida is notorious for being extremely hot and humid. This means that many Mount Dora residents want to stay inside and keep cool, which means running their air conditioners more or less constantly. While running the A/C is necessary to keep comfortable in the hot months, this could mean higher-than-average energy bills. To help keep cooling costs down, we’ve compiled a few tips that you can easily implement in your apartment:
• Close your blinds to block out the sun.
• Use your ceiling fans and invest in a floor fan or two.
• When you’re not at home, make sure to leave your thermostat no higher than 5 degrees above the temperature you keep it at while you’re home. Otherwise, you’ll negate any money-saving benefits by having to cool the entire house back down.
• Avoid unnecessary lighting, and always turn off the lights in a room you are not using.
The combination of these changes can make a huge difference to the overall comfort in your apartment during the hot summer months, and possibly even lead to saving money on your utility bills.
