Cool Your Home Without the AC

Now that summer is around the corner many residents in Boise and surrounding areas are trying to figure out how they can be more environmentally aware and friendly this summer in regards to running their air conditioning units (AC).

These residents also want to save money on their utility bills this summer.

If you are looking for ways to reduce your cooling costs and protect the planet then follow these tips:

  • Use floor fans and ceiling fans! It is cheaper to have a fan running in the room you are in then to have an AC unit cooling an entire house.
  • Keep your air filters clean! If your air filters are dirty then your AC unit has to run harder and this increases your utility bill.
  • If you are not at home then turn of your AC! According to the Department of Energy you can save 5 percent to 15 percent on your air-conditioning bills by raising the temperature setting on your thermostat when you're away. then it is fighting against your AC and makes the AC have to work much harder.
  • If you have a basement in your home then use it! Basements are naturally cooler because they are underground. So instead of running the air conditioner all the time, turn it off and head downstairs.
  • Cook outdoors and eat cold foods. The stove significantly heats up your house.


Try to implement these solutions in your household this summer to help reduce cooling costs and protect the environment.

It is important to keep your family and friends cool in your home but that doesn’t always mean you have to crank the AC!
