5 Summer Energy Saving Tips

With most of the cost from cooling, the average summer residential energy bill in Houston is $130. Whether a homeowner or CEO of a major corporation, these five quick tips will help you to save money.

1. Seal Windows and Doors

Cooling is the primary expense of most homes. Sealing cracks around windows and doors will prevent loss and cut costs up to 30%.

2. Install LED Bulbs

Changing 10 of your light bulbs to LED will cost $32 but save $123 per year.

3. Close Doors and Vents

Close doors and vents in rooms not in use to reduce thermostat load.

4. Unplug

Household appliances and electronics draw power even when not in use. Unplug items seldom used to reduce power consumption.

5. Use Ceiling Fans

Using ceiling fans to supplement AC performance can save as much as $500 annually.
