We stopped by Rochester Public Utilities to get some tips for shrinking those AC costs specifically. First and foremost, folks should me mindful of where they set the AC at. Tony Benson with RPU says they don’t have to set it at 69-70 degrees in the summer and that setting it to 78-79 degrees will pull enough humidity out of the house for it to be comfortable and be noticeably cooler.

It’s also a good idea to check with your energy company to see what rebates they offer. Benson says RPU has a clean/tune option that helps offset the cost of having a AC unit cleaned and maintained.

“You don’t want to be stuck when the first 95 degree day hits and be like, “Oh no I just turned my AC on,” and have it not work or not be efficient whatever it may be,” explains Benson.
