Reasons Why Your Electric Bill May Be Higher Than Normal This Summer

Summer is around the corner in Orange County and even though we’re still enjoying some cool days, the reality is that warm weather is coming.

Sadly, one thing that most people in Orange County will have in common this summer is opening up their electric bill to find out that it’s higher than it should be. The most common reaction will be shocked because nobody likes to open up their electric bill to find that it’s potentially $50 to $200 more than it should be.

Thankfully, you can prepare for summer right now by ensuring. your home HVAC system is in good shape when you follow these simple tips.

Tip #1 – Make Sure Your Home Is Ready for Summer

If it’s been a while since you took the time to examine the doors and windows on your home, now is a good time to do it.

With warm weather approaching, you want to make sure that the doors and windows on your house are properly sealed so that the cold air from your air conditioner will not be able to escape from cracks around your doors and windows.

Tip #2 – Check Your Attic Insulation 

Another handy thing that you should do to make sure that your home is ready for the summer is to check your attic and verify that the insulation is in excellent shape because poorly insulated attics are one of the main reasons why homeowners in the United States find that they’ve been paying more money than they should during the summer and winter months

Tip #3 – Get Your HVAC Tuned Up To Lower Your Electric Bill 

Last of all, but most important, another handy thing that you can do to make sure that your house is ready for the summer months is to get your HVAC tuned up. This step is imperative because, if it’s been a while since you’ve tuned up your HVAC system, you’re going to find that it may have a more difficult time running during the summer months so it makes sense to get the unit tuned up now while we still have some cool days ahead.
