Save Energy This Spring = Saving $$$

Useing more efficient light bulbs. Using light bulbs that use less energy will help not to heat the house up as well as help you save energy.

Just like in the winter setting the theromostat at the right temp. is very important to help save energy setting the right temp in the spring is important as well. Set the temp. a few degrees higher when no one is at home so that the a.c. does not work hard to cool the whole house.

Ceiling fans can be very useful for helping to keep the home at a reasonable temperture. Remember that ceiling fans are for our comfort not the room and should be turned off when not uing the room

Use your window shades to help block out the sun. This will help to protect the room from overheating.

Another great tip is to check air conditioner filters each month. Good rule of thumb is to change the filter every 3 months. Dirty filters make the ac work harder to do the same job.
