5 Easy Ways to Cut Summer Utility Bills

  1. Cut down on energy leaks.  This includes turning off lights and unplugging electronics when not in use.IMG_1697
  2. Use heavy drapes and blinds.  Stopping the sun shining into windows cuts down on cooling costs.
  3. Keep your house warmer when you are away, and lower the thermostat to 78°F (26°C) only when you need cooling.*IMG_1696
  4. Keep your cooling system well maintained.  Dirty A/C filter block airflow and make units work less efficiently.
