How to Keep Your House Cool Without Running Up the Utility Bill

We were recently hit with a record heatwave and another is predicted for this weekend. I knew it was the perfect time to step up our AC game! I partnered with Midea to test out their smart Portable Air Conditioner and bring you some tips on how to keep your house cool without running up the utility bill.

Midea Portable AC

Choose the Right Size Air Conditioner

Bigger isn’t better when it comes to AC units. If your AC unit is too large, it will cool the room quickly, but only remove some of the humidity. This leaves the room with a damp, clammy feeling. It also wastes energy, leading to higher utility bills.

 This Midea unit is 8,000 BTU which is ideal for Rooms up to 100 Sq. ft.

Use Ceiling Fans Along with Air Conditioner

Ceiling fans can be used along with AC units to save money. If you have a ceiling fan, run it at the same time as the AC. It pushes cooler air down and over the bodies of the people in the room. You can actually raise the thermostat on your air conditioning unit by 4 degrees without lessening the cooling effect if you turn on the ceiling fan.

Buy a Wifi Enabled Air Conditioner

Wi-fi enabled air conditioners like the Midea Portable AC with Wifi allow you to turn on your AC at any time, from anywhere using an app! I love that I can turn on the AC an hour before I get home instead of running it all day. In addition to being convenient, this option saves you money on your electric bill.

Midea is also compatible with Alexa. You can turn the unit on and off and set the temperature.

Make Sure Your AC has a Time and Energy Saver

The Midea Portable AC has a 24 hour time setting. You can set the run time for whatever you want, and don’t worry about turning it off to reduce the energy consumption.

Additional features of the Midea Portable Air Conditioner

Easy Installation: I usually dread installing any kind of appliance, but this portable air conditioner was so easy to set up! I think it took me longer to take it out of the box then it did to install! Simply, install the airtight bracket in the window and clip on the hose. The unit works with both hung and sliding windows. The built-in wheels make it easy to move the unit around.

Unit is shipped with a LED remote (batteries included- love that!) as well as all the necessary accessories for installation. The adjustable window bracket fits openings from 26. 5-48″ while the clip-on drain hose measures 59.

 Easy-to-read digital LED control panel:  provides exact control over sleep settings, timer, fan, mode (cooling, dehumidification, fan only), temperature setting (62-90°F), and power functions.

Easy to Maintain: An indicator light lets you know when it’s time to clean the filter. The filter is both reusable and washable.
