5 Ways to Save Money and Energy This Summer

As the summer hits at full speed, you might be wondering how you can save money, energy, and keep cool this season! We want to share with you some friendly tips to help work alongside the heat.

1. Let the sunlight in!

Open up your curtains or shades and take advantage of the natural lighting instead of using artificial lighting all day.

2. Turn your thermostat down!

You can use more of the natural heat from the sunlight to warm your home instead of running your heating system all day. If it becomes too hot, you can benefit from keeping your windows open at night when it cools down and keep them closed during the day to keep the cool air in and the hot air out.

3. Efficiently use your ceiling fan!

You can use your ceiling fan to heat or cool your home! Running your fan counterclockwise can create a cool breeze, while running your fan clockwise can help circulate air trapped on the ceiling and help warm your home.

4. Unplug!

Relax, unplug, and reduce energy costs being used, especially when you leave your home! Your devices can suck up all your energy, so unplugging your computer, tv, game consoles, and other appliances can help you save up to $100 or even more.

5. Wash with cold water!

You can avoid your water heating system running too much by mixing up your laundry routine. If you don’t already, washing your laundry in cold water can be super beneficial in saving money, energy, and will help extend the life of your clothing!

We hope these tips can help you this summer to focus more on enjoying the sun and heat, instead of worrying about bills!
