Summer Energy-Saving Tips

Cost associated with cooling your home can make up a large portion of your summer electric bills. Stay cool and save money with these energy efficiency tips!


  • Close blinds and drapes during the day to keep heat out.
  • Set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you are home. Set it to a higher temperature when you are away.
  • Turn off lights and ceiling fans when you leave the room.


  • Plant trees and shrubs to shade the exterior of your home.
  • Replace disposable air filters (or clean permanent filters) once a month to maximize efficiency.
