Quick and easy energy efficiency tips to stay cool this summer.
High temperatures can lead to higher energy usage as people try to stay cool. Below are some tips to help manage your energy use.
• Use a ceiling fan! Make sure your ceiling fans are set to operate in a counterclockwise direction to push cool air down into living spaces.
• Turn off unnecessary lights. Be sure to turn off lights when you leave a room. Lights emit heat and cause your air conditioning system to work harder.
