Here are some great tips that will help you save on your energy costs during the sweltering summer.
- A couple of degrees can save you a few dollars. Just by keeping your thermostat at 72 degrees (or higher) you can save 3% or more on your cooling costs.
- Keep it breezy. Anyone with ceiling fans know what a benefit they are in the summer months. A good fan will allow you to raise your thermostat a couple of degrees without sacrificing comfort.
- Don’t let the sun shine in. Sure, it’s great for a summer tan but the blazing summer sun is the enemy of air conditioning. During the day, keep the sun out by shutting your windows and closing your blinds and drapes.
