4 Ways to lower your energy bill this summer

With summer heating things up, check out these 4 ways to lower your energy bill while also trying to stay cool!


1. Get Smart

Smart home systems can adjust the thermostat for you; as well as cut your residential energy costs.


2. Schedule an A/C Physical

Arrange for a HVAC professional to give your A/C unit a checkup. Clearing a clogged A/C unit filter alone can save 5 to 15 percent in energy use.


3. Start Small

Even apartment dwellers can cut their average energy bills by turning off and unplugging unused electronics and small appliances. According to EPA estimates, idle gadgets waste more than 100 billion kilowatt hours of electricity annually, costing consumers $10 billion a year.


4. Opt for LEDs

Replacing conventional bulbs with LED alternatives can add up to significant savings. Residential LEDs - especially Energy Star-rated products - use at least 75 percent less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting according to the Energy Department. These are even helping the environment.
