Cutting back energy in your home doesn’t mean you won’t stay cool, you will just stay cooler for less without getting hot due to your increased charges.

This week we are forecasted to have temperatures in the 90s/100s and your electric bill is surely going to go up.

Here are some ways homeowners and renters can trim back costs.

Turn the lights out when you are not using them.

Adjust/program your thermostat to work around your schedule.

Keep windows/doors closed.

Close your blinds and drapes to keep the sun rays out.
