School’s Out for the Summer!

Now that school's out, your kids will be home all day consuming everything - including power. Here are a few tips to save a few bucks and keep your home comfortable.

 

1. Turn off the lights. Especially any "edison" bulbs. They produce quite a bit of heat and use 85% more energy then LED bulbs. If you are still using "incandescent" bulbs, you are behind the curve.

2. Close the shades on any windows that get direct sunlight. Pay attention to the orientation of your home. West facing windows are great for daylight in the early part of the day, but the sun will cook you in the afternoon. Make the kids close the shades, it's a good lesson. 

3. Get your AC Serviced. Now is the time to request a service call to check out you Air Conditioner system. Avoid the 911 request for service on July 4th when it is 105 degrees and you have your "favorite” sister-in- law over. You know she’ll gossip about you and cause some dram and you don’t need that in your life!

 

4. Clean your condensing unit. It’s time to hose off the condensing unit. That’s the big box outside with the fan. It is a good chore for your teenager. Don’t be afraid to hold them accountable as much as they may kick and scream about getting off the couch. 

 

5. Do a walk through to check that all windows are fully closed. Another chore for the those kids who are driving you crazy.
