Saving on Energy in the Spring

Spring is just around the corner. That means green grass, nice flowers, and finally: wonderful weather. With this beautiful weather comes a chance to save money on your electric bill.

Right now, you are looking forward to that tax return to get back on track after the Christmas season and higher heating bills after this crazy winter.

We have one quick tip to help you save even more money.

It may be predictable, but most people forget about the second part to this piece of advice. Ready? Open your windows. That’s it.

Spring cleaning wouldn’t be the same without the fresh spring air lightly wafting through the white sheers.

But if you forget this last part, you will not save any money. Find out what the temperature will be for the day. Set your thermostat for that temperature. This will allow your house to adjust to the outside air. If you forget to adjust the thermostat, you will be wasting the opportunity to save on your power bill.

If the day is supposed to be in the 70s, go ahead and turn off the whole HVAC system. Turn it back on as the sun goes down. This will keep your home at an optimal temperature.
