Summer Savings Tips
Warm summer weather provides a few extra benefits to help you save money. Here are a few savings tips to help you keep money in the bank.
  1. Turn off the air conditioner – Try to pattern AC use around the weather and time of day. For those times when it’s breezy or simply warm, a fan and open windows will work just as well and for far less money.
  2. Replace air conditioner filters – Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause the system to run longer increasing energy usage. Experts recommend changing your filters every 30 – 60 days or more frequently if you have pets or allergies.
  3. Take advantage of long daylight hours – use natural light instead of turning on the lights. 
  4. Cook outside – using a stove or oven can create excess heat inside your house. Grilling is a great way to take advantage of the outdoors while the weather is nice
  5. Let laundry dry outside.
  6. Plan ahead for future projects – The end of summer is one of the best times of year for big discounts on home and garden materials.
