Summer Energy-Saving Tips
Posted on August 5th, 2021 by Devine Bros
As the summer season winds down, you may be looking for ways to save money on your electric bill while staying cool and comfortable. You can do a few simple things to help keep yourself from getting too warm this summer while cutting down on your energy use! It’s never too late to start since it will help you no matter what in the long run.
Turn Off Lights and Electronics
Be sure to turn off lights and other electrical appliances when they are not in use and get the whole family into the habit of turning off the lights whenever they leave a room. If it’s not being used for an extended period of time, all electrical devices should be unplugged so that energy doesn’t trickle out— a problem that your bills will feel the consequences of!
Close Your Curtains
Did you know that if you close your curtains during the day and the more you block out some of that light from the sun, the less light will come in through your windows and the cooler it will be inside your home? Such a simple solution to an overall big problem is often the best one to turn to!
Invest in a Ceiling Fan
Ceiling fans work by circulating air around the room instead of cooling down one spot in particular as an AC unit does. When ceiling fans circulate the air, that can make it feel up to 10 degrees cooler than if you were sitting in front of an open window or using just a fan.
Proper Repair and Maintenance
When you invest in the proper preventative care, maintenance, and repair, you will save money in the long run! There are fewer chances for sudden breakdowns and less of a need to empty your wallet due to emergency repair needs.
And your central air conditioning system will be in good hands when you choose Devine Bros!
