Summer Energy Saving

The temperature is heating up - especially here in Texas and it's a good time to look at keeping your house cool for less.

  • Keep windows covered with curtains, preferably blackout lined, or blinds (especially those windows facing east and west)
  • Make sure your air conditioner is working efficiently. Tip: Make a note on your calendar to have it serviced when service prices are lower and not in the heat of summer.
  • Use ceiling fans
  • If you don't already have one, get a programmable thermostat. You don't want to turn it off completely when you're not at home because it will take more energy to cool down a hot house, but change the temperature a few degrees when you're not at home.
  • Make sure you don't have leaks around doors and windows.
