With summer in full swing, it’s important to stay ahead of saving electricity to avoid power outages, help reduce your energy costs and preserve our natural resources.
🔥 Set your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher. Increasing your air conditioner 7 to 10 degrees 8 hours a day can save up to 10 percent on cooling costs.
🔥 Use smart or programmable thermostats to set and control temperature directly from your smart device and effortlessly maintain energy savings, even when you’re not at home.
🔥 Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioners, and adjust blades to run counter clockwise to push cool air down.
🔥Postpone using appliances like the oven, dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer until cooler times of the day to avoid heating up your home.
