Benefits of putting the air conditioner to rest

Autumn’s well on its way, and with it comes changing leaves, pumpkin spice lattes and a dip in the temperature. Instead of using your air conditioner until the snow falls, now’s a great time to open up the windows and let Mother Nature take care of the cooling.

Here are a few benefits of putting the air conditioner to rest:

Save on energy bills

According to the Department of Energy, air conditioners account for 6% of all of the electricity in the country, costing homeowners $29 billion yearly. In essence, the more often you turn your air conditioning on — and keep it running — the more you’re paying. Turning your air conditioner off even for just a few days every month will reduce your bill.

Reduce carbon emissions

Limiting your air conditioner use isn’t only good for your energy bill — it’s also great for the planet! On an annual basis, air conditioners release around 117 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the air.
