Summer Tips

Save money without sacrificing comfort!

1. Invest in a Programmable Thermostat: Match your thermostat to your schedule. When you are home, have the temperature lower, and when you are away let it be a little warmer. Some newer models also allow you to control the temperature from your smartphone, so you can ensure the house will be comfortable when you get home.

2. Change Your Air Filters: Allergies driving you insane? Check your air filter! It may be time for a change. Some filters are designed for allergy sufferers by ensuring pollen, pet dander, and other irritants do not get forced through. Filters should be changed monthly.

3. Rearrange Your Furniture: Furniture that obstructs air vents means you could be cooling that sofa instead of your living room. There are plastic covers for your vents that could direct air flow in the right direction, but rearranging is typically the easiest fix.
