How To Save During A Heat Wave.
We’re having a heat wave! With these record-breaking temperatures, you are likely paying a pretty penny for your energy bill. If you’re looking for ways to cut costs, Madison Monroe and Associates is here with some pro tips to keep costs low. Find out how to beat the heat!
1. Tune Your Thermostat.
Although you might be feeling like slamming the down arrow repeatedly on days like these, the best way to save is to cool your home or apartment just enough to be comfortable. If you can bear to set your thermostat above 75⁰F, you’ll save up to 15% in energy usage.
2. Check in on that AC Unit.
You want your AC unit working at maximum efficiency, which means you need to check in ad make sure it's in proper working order and not clogged. This is to preserve the life of your unit and save you money today and in the future
3. Become A Fan… of Fans!
Fans are very effective at making a hot home more livable. They use roughly 1/60th of the energy an AC does. If it’s not enough, use them in conjunction with your AC to maximize the cool without the added cost.
4. Turn Off Your Electricity at Peak Hours.
Energy companies charge you significantly more during “peak hours” so attempt to curb your laundry and TV watching from 3-7pm. This can save you a load of money as your energy usage will be billed at a much lower rate during off hours.
