When the seasons are the most extreme, we tend to use the most energy. Take the advice of companies like IDT Energy and you will find that your bill is significantly lower.
First, adjust your thermostat. By setting your air conditioner five degrees higher, you can save up to 20% on cooling costs. Another way to cut back on cooling costs is to install ceiling fans. In most cases, these fans use less energy than a light bulb.
Water heating is responsible for around 13% of the total energy bill. Turn the water heater down to 120 degrees or to the ‘normal’ setting while you’re home, and to the lowest when you’re not.
Sealing leaks, cracks spaces and windows can save up to 20% on air conditioning costs. Be sure to check the insulation as well. Weather stripping is also very important.
