Money Saving Tips During the Summertime

Money Saving Tips During the Summertime

Summer is the season of vacations, pool parties, and backyard barbecues. But it can also be a time for excess energy consumption in your home! It can be easy to forget about those staggering bills until they creep up on you at the last minute. So, it is essential to stay aware and follow these tips so that you can keep your bills low during this hot season.


Turn Off Appliances Not in Use

When an appliance is left on for long periods, it uses up a lot of power even when it's not being used. Be sure to double-check your devices, especially before you leave your home, to ensure they aren't wasting any extra energy. And while you might not want to turn off your AC completely, it's a good idea to keep the temperature running in an energy-efficient setting.

Turn Off Lights and Fans

As a general rule to save on energy bills throughout the season, be sure to turn off lights and fans when you leave the room for more than five minutes. Remind the whole family about this rule to make summertime a lot easier! This especially applies to your fans, as it spends energy for as long as it's spinning for.

Invest in Energy-Efficient Appliances

Try to invest in energy-efficient appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, and clothes dryers to help you cut down on utility bills! Not only will this be beneficial in summer, but also throughout the rest of the year.

Replace Air Filters Regularly

When your home's air filter is clogged, it takes more energy to cool the house because the air conditioner has to work harder. You can save as much as 10% on your cooling bill by replacing your filters every month or so!

And remember, as summer starts to wind down, soon comes the opportunity to start applying to get your property taxes lowered!
