Warm Weather Conservation Tips

 

  1. iS_6378955.jpgKeep the coils of your central or window air conditioner free of dust and dirt.
  2. Make sure the output of your air conditioner is right for the size of your room or house to ensure optimum efficiency and comfort.
  3. Change or clean your air conditioning filter monthly during the cooling season to improve efficiency and the life of your air conditioner.
  4. Look for an air conditioning unit that is ENERGY STAR® approved.
  5. Cook on the grill to keep cooking heat outside the home.
  6. Install reflective window coatings to reflect heat away from your home.
  7. During the day, block the heat from the sun by closing windows, doors and curtains.
  8. During the hot summer afternoons, avoid using appliances.
  9. Open windows on cool summer days and nights. A good rule of thumb is not to open windows when the outside temperature is warmer than the inside of your house.
