Easy Ways to Save Energy this Spring
1. Get a Programmable Thermostat
Switching from a manual to a programmable thermostat is a great way to help save on energy bills. This allows you to conserve energy by setting the indoor temperature higher when you’re not home, or lower at night when it cools down.
2. Cook Outdoors
Spring is the perfect time to get outside and get grilling! Cooking outside, or eating cold foods, helps to save money on energy costs. Also, by not turning on the oven, you’re helping to keep your home cool and comfortable.
3. Weatherproof Your Home
Make sure to caulk your windows and insulate doors to keep your home at the best temperature for you and your family. On very warm days, close your window treatments to keep your home cool so your air conditioning unit can run less frequently.
4. Turn on Bathroom Fans
Turn on your bathroom fan while you shower to pull any excess heat and humidity from your home. You should also consider switching to a low-flow showerhead model to cut your water usage in half.
5. Schedule an A/C Tune-Up
Beat the rush and have peace of mind knowing your A/C will work when you need it most. Schedule an A/C tune-up to help your system run at maximum efficiency to help keep your home cool while using less energy. Bay State Fuel Oil offers tune-ups to keep your system running at peak efficiency.
