Keeping your cool in the Summer

Now that summer is finally here, I thought I’d share some super helpful tips on keeping your energy bill down in these warm weather months.

1. Start AT THE TOP…

A well insulated attic will keep hot air out and cool air in. Your air conditioning unit won’t have to work as hard, saving you money all summer long.

2. Who let the COOL OUT?

50% of leaks come from drafty windows. Do you feel hot air seeping in? It may be time to have your windows weather stripped or replaced.

3. The futures so bright I have to wear SHADES…

Window treatments can definitely help, especially if replacing windows are not an option for you at this time. Keep shades and window treatments covering sunlight during daylight hours to reduce the heat it lets in. Did you know light colored curtains will help reflect the sunlight better?

4. TAKE IT EASY…

Run your dishwasher, washer and dryer later in the day when it’s cooler. Try to use your oven less. The added heat will make you air conditioner work harder.

STAY COOL MY FRIENDS…
