While we all look forward to summer, none of us want higher energy bills.

Whether you are running your air conditioning more often, using more water to take showers, or using more electricity to run fans to get a cool breeze, energy saving tips can help your pocketbook. Here are energy saving tips for you.

  1. Take shorter showers. Decrease the duration of how long you stay in the shower to save on your hot water usage. If your family struggles to get enough hot water, let us show you how upgrading your hot water heater can save you energy dollars. Read more here.
  2. Automate your thermostat. If you are still using a manual thermostat to adjust the air conditioning in your home, consider replacing it with an automatic one that can be programmed when you are not home. Let us help. Read more here.
  3. Have your air conditioning system serviced regularly. This will help your investment work properly for years into the future, while saving you money now. And if your equipment is older, consider replacing it with a high-efficiency system. Read more here.
  4. Keep the sun out. When the sun is at its hottest, pull your window treatments closed to block out rays.
  5. Install energy-efficient light bulbs. Change your incandescent bulbs to more efficient ones. They last longer.
  6. Alternate methods of cooking. Instead of using your oven every day, consider using your microwave or grilling outside. Heating your oven up daily adds more heat to your home and requires your cooling system to work harder.
