Tips on how to live a greener lifestyle

As outdoor temperatures heat up, there are plenty of steps you can take during the summer months to maximize your comfort inside and save on utility bills.

Maintain Your Cool!

Air conditioning consumes a lot of energy during the summer, but you don’t want to waste power cooling an empty home or return home to a miserably warm house after a long day. One way to save on your utility bills is to program your thermostat for a slightly higher temperature during the day when nobody is home.

Use window coverings wisely

Closing your blinds, shades or curtains during the day will limit the amount of sunlight and heat that enter your home. The Department of Energy says that smart management of window coverings can reduce heat gain by up to 77%.

Make the most of ceiling fans

You can help cut cooling costs through the smart use of ceiling fans, which consume much less power than air-conditioners, to circulate air in the room. Although fans don’t actually lower the temperature, they will make you feel cooler. But be sure to turn them off when you leave the room.

Energy Saving Tip

When dust and pet hair build up on your refrigerator’s condenser coils, the motor works harder and uses more electricity. Make sure the coils are clean, so air can circulate freely.
