Summertime Energy Efficiency Tips:

#1:  Use fans around your house to circulate cool air. Set ceiling fans to turn counterclockwise, as this will push air down and create a cooler feeling in the room.

#2:  Replace air filters in your home with each season. Dirty air filters cause your system to work harder and longer, using unnecessary energy as a result.

#3:  Keep lamps and TV sets away from your thermostat. Thermostats can sense the heat that these items give off, which can cause the A/C to run longer than required.
