Cool Moves For Hot Weather!

Saving energy is good for you and good for your country. The electric power company says these are a few ways to save on air conditioning this summer.

  • Make sure the air flow to an outdoor air conditioner is not blocked by bushes or other obstructions.
  • Keep the sun outside. Close drapes and blinds during the hottest part of the day.
  • Check to see that windows and doors are closed when the air conditioning is running.
  • Close closet doors in air-conditioned rooms. Close openings to the attic and other storage areas.
  • Turn off the furnace pilot light.
  • Clean or replace filters on air conditioning units.
  • Do hot things during cooler morning and evening hours, including cooking, showering, drying clothes and ironing.
  • Turn off unnecessary lights.
