Summer Energy Savings Tips
We hope you are having a terrific summer. It’s hot out there! Here are a few tips to help you stay cool and keep your energy bills down during these hot summer months:
- Circulate the air
Did you know that turning your ceiling fans counterclockwise creates a better breeze inside?
- Adjust your thermostat
Try raising your thermostat 2 degrees when you leave the home to make sure you don’t pay for AC for an empty room!
- Keep the sun out!
Lower your blinds or shades during the day to keep the warmth of the sun out of your home.
- Cook outdoors
Cooking inside makes the house warm. Try cooking with a microwave or slow cooker to keep the kitchen cool. Cook outdoors on a grill to keep the heat outside.
