Summer tips to help you save energy

Updated June 23, 2020
Looking for ways to lower your energy bill as you spend more time at home? Here are a few simple tips:

Save money in the laundry room – Wash full loads. Your washer will use about the same amount of energy no matter the size of the load, so fill it up.

Keep the heat outside – it’s time to grill and microwave. When you fire up your oven inside you’re not making your air conditioner’s job any easier.

Shade your way into savings – On hot days, tilt your blinds upward toward the ceiling to block heat from the sun. This simple step can reduce heat gain by up to 45 percent.
