Tips to save Energy

Easy ideas to manage your bill and save energy

Seven ways to save:


Cool down with a fan

Fans keep air circulating, allowing you to raise the thermostat a few degrees and stay just as comfortable, while reducing your air conditioning costs.

Window ac

Install an airtight AC

Over time, moisture can damage your window air conditioner seal and allow cool air to escape. Keeping the seal tight can help reduce your cooling costs.

Air filter

Replace filters as needed

Dirty air filters make your air conditioner work harder to circulate air. By cleaning or replacing your filters monthly, you can improve energy efficiency and reduce costs.
