Invest In A Ceiling Fan

During the summer it can get extremely hot and stuffy in your home, so you might have the urge to crank the A/C on all day.  If you do that, your energy bill will extremely high at the end of the month. It is best that you invest in ceiling fans for rooms that you spend the most time in, such as your bedroom and family room.  Having a ceiling fan can make a room feel 10 degrees cooler and use 10 percent of the energy of central A/C unit.

Cover Your Windows

One of the easiest ways to save energy and make your home feel cooler during the summer is to take advantage of your blinds and currents.  During the day when it is the hottest, you want to make sure that your curtains or blinds are closed. You can prevent heat gain during the day and use less energy by simply covering your windows.  It is critical that you do this if you have an older home with older windows.

Programmable Thermostat

One of the best investments for your home is a programmable thermostat so that you can set when you want the air conditioning to turn on.  You can program your thermostat to turn on the A/C when you are home and turn it off when everyone is away. It is wise ways to save energy and keep some money in your wallet at the end of the month.
