To stay cool without feeling the heat on your electric bill, give these ideas a try:
Avoid creating heat in the kitchen when it’s time for dinner. Try grilling outside in the cooler evening hours, or give the microwave a try. Avoid using the stove or oven whenever possible.
Throw Some Shade
Cool your house by not letting the heat in! Shades and blinds serve that purpose well, providing an excellent barrier from the outside heat—and they don’t require any electricity usage!
Make Time for a Tune-Up
Have your air conditioning equipment professionally tuned up as needed. Clean or replace filters seasonally, and make sure vents are open and unobstructed.
Weatherization isn’t just for winter. Solid insulation, window caulking, and sealed ductwork will help keep cool air in and warm air out.
Run your ceiling fan’s blades counter-clockwise to blow air downward and create a cooling breeze. This allows you to set the thermostat at a higher setting and still feel cool.
Consider a Ductless Heat Pump
Ductless heat pumps are highly efficient heating and cooling systems that provide year-round comfort. This technology is affordable, easy to install, and can dramatically reduce the energy wasted in homes heated by other less efficient electric heating sources. And we offer rebates of up to $2,000 or zero-interest financing to help you make the switch!
