Summer is in full swing and with that brings sweltering heat. If you are like most people, you probably are wondering how to beat the heat with some summer energy saving tips.
When the heat and humidity hit, we run fans and air conditioners to stay cool and let’s face it: They aren’t cheap!
So how do you stay cool while not spending an arm and a leg? Here are some summer energy saving tips from the experts at Feazel. Read on:
Fire up the grill
Cooking inside during the summer months increases your home’s temperature, meaning your air conditioner will likely run more. So fire up the grill and cook meals outside to keep your home cooler! Bonus: Grilled food tastes better.
Install a programmable thermostat
One easy way to save money – and energy — is by investing in a programmable thermostat. By programming your thermostat, you can save hundreds of dollars a year. Bonus: You won’t be needlessly heating or cooling your home.
Seal leaks – or upgrade your windows
Your home’s windows can be leaky, meaning heat in the winter and cold air in the summer seeps out – wasting energy. Seal leaks or better yet, install energy efficient windows. Chances are, your home’s windows could use an upgrade which could save you in the long run on heating and cooling costs.
Run appliances at night
This one might not always be feasible, but if you can, avoid running appliances like the dishwasher, washer or dryer until after the sun goes down. They will heat your home so running them in the daytime could waste energy.
