  • Around the months of June to September, our energy bills are high because of our constant need to have the air conditioner on. It’s no surprise that some homeowners can owe an average of $300 just for keeping their house cool every minute. Still, that’s a hefty amount of money that you can avoid when you follow the tips below.

    Raise the Temperature

    This might seem a tad bit counter intuitive, but raising your thermostat to a few degrees can make all the difference. Yes, even if you plan on keeping your AC on for the entire summer. You can also implement a smart thermostat that raises your room temperature when no one else is home.

    Open the Windows

    Unless you live in the desert, it’s not a bad idea to let some cool breeze in. This might also be very beneficial if your hometown can go up to 100+ degree during the day time but drop to the 70s at night. Not only will it keep you cool, but you’ll save tons of money for not using the air conditioner.

    Turn it Off When You’re Not Home

    There’s no point in having your AC on when you’re not using it. If you happen to be on summer vacation, just turn it off. Unplug all other appliances such as the TV, computer, charges, etc. Unless it’s the refrigerator, you should probably unplug it.

    Get Curtains

    During the hottest days, don’t forget to use your curtains. After all, they’re not just for decoration. You can even buy some thermal shades that can block the sunlight which can be very beneficial for rooms that are facing west.
