Ways To Save Money On Your Electric Bill This Summer

During the dog days of summer, you may be tempted to blast your air conditioner. However, this will only wear out your air conditioner and increase your electric bill considerably. Neither of these are ideal. Below are some tips on how to stay cool while keeping electric bill at bay.
  • Invest in a programmable thermostat.  Set your thermostat to 78 degrees. You can raise the temperature even more when no one is home. 

  • Dirty air filters force your air conditioner to work harder and use more energy. Changing your air filter once a month can prevent this. 

  • Close the blinds and curtains closed. This is especially important for rooms that face the sun. 

  • Put on your ceiling fan to stay cool. 

  • Turn off and unplug appliances that you are not using. 

  • Need to buy new appliances this summer? Opt for the most energy efficient choices on the market. 

  • Upgrade to CFL bulbs. They use less energy and last longer than traditional bulbs.
