Save Energy Costs Now Summer Is Here!
Summertime and the heat it brings with it can also bring high bills. Save energy costs this season with the following tips from your friends at 5 Star Rental Purchase to keep from breaking a sweat. From either just lying down on your couch mid-day, or from when opening a hot summer’s sky-high electricity bill that you’re unable (or even want to) pay.
Stay Cool Tips:
Install A Programmable Thermostat
Did you know that if/when properly used, a programmable thermostat can save you around $150 in energy bill costs according to the EPA? This is especially so if you’re away from your home during the hottest parts of the day. Regardless if you’re working, or just running errands, if you’re not at home during the summer, turn the thermostat up about eight degrees. This will help you to save money on your monthly energy bill.
Keep The Blinds Shut
A lot of unwelcome and unwanted heat comes directly through your windows. By keeping your blinds and curtains closed, you’ll be keeping out a lot of heat.
Start Using A Fan
Fans are a great way to cut down on heat and to save energy costs. To increase efficiency, make a cool breeze by placing a container of ice cubes in front of your fan. To make the ice last longer, just add some salt. As the ice begins to melt and evaporate, it will really help to keep you cool.
