Here are some tips to reduce energy costs during the summer!
- Replace your air filter and clean air vents. Not only will this increase your AC's efficiency, it will also cut down on leftover spring allergens.
- Keep window curtains closed and turn off lights in rooms that are not being used. These can heat up a room very quickly and make the AC work harder to cool it down, increasing costs.
- In the kitchen and laundry, reducing the use of your large appliaces can lead to big savings. Only do full loads in the washer and dishwasher and reduce oven use. Instead enjoy salads and other cold food during the summer!
- Put on some sunscreen and spend time outdoors! This means you can turn off indoor electronics and cut energy costs.
