Costs associated with cooling your home can make up a large portion of your summer electric bills. Stay cool and save money with these energy efficiency tips!

Close blinds and drapes during the day to keep the heat out.

Turn off lights and ceiling fans when you leave a room. Fans cool people, not rooms.

Schedule regular maintenance for your cooling equipment to maximize efficiency.

Use solar lights to brighten up your outdoor space.

Seal cracks and openings to prevent warm air from leaking into your home.

Replace disposable air filters once a month to maximize efficiency or follow manufacturer's guidelines.

Install a programmable thermostat to easily adjust the temperature when you are sleeping or away from home.

On hot days, avoid using the oven. Cook on the stove, microwave or grill outside.
