09 Jul Energy Savings Tips For Hot Summer Months
Summer is well underway! Is your air conditioner keeping your house at a comfortable temperature? Here are a few ways to stay cool without breaking the bank this summer.
- Thermostat Control – Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer. Ensure humidity control on days when it is needed. The difference between indoor and outdoor temperature will have a big impact on your energy bill at the end of the month.
- Interior Fan – Use an interior fan along with your window air conditioner unit to spread cooled air throughout your home. This will cool your home more efficiently without increasing power use.
- Appliance Location – Keep any appliances that give off heat away from your thermostat. Lamps and TVs can affect your energy efficiency.
- Energy Star – If your air conditioning unit is old, consider buying a new, energy efficient model. Energy Star can help you save money because it uses less energy to cool your home.
