Save on Energy Costs this Summer

When temperatures peak hot or cold, it shows in your energy bill.


The summer months are known for hot, humid days that cause your AC to work on a continuous loop. Here are 7 simple tricks to help you save energy and lower cooling costs this summer.


  1. We often experience cooler temperatures at night, and you can harness that natural relief by using fans. A high-quality fancan make a room feel as much as 4 degrees cooler!
  2. If the temperatures are cool and comfortable outside and a slight breeze is in the air, bring the outdoors in by opening cross-room windows. Airing out your home will cool you off and boost your mood!
  3. To combat changing temperatures and preserve your comfort level in your home, use window coverings like blinds, shades, or curtains.
  4. Make more meals outdoors to reduce indoor temps. When you grill and dine on the deck or patio, you limit the residual heat that escapes when you use the kitchen oven, stovetop, and microwave.
  5. Maintain your thermostat and turn the air off when you plan to be away from home for 8 hours or more. Why use the energy to keep it running if no one is home?
  6. Unplug unused technologylike chargers, televisions, and other small electronics to save up to $100 a year.
  7. Upgradeto appliances that are Energy Star certified by the EPA for energy efficiency. A well-working system requires less energy—and that reduces costs.
