As the temperature moves the mercury higher and higher, many of us look for additional ways to stay cool. The pool. The lake. Walk-in freezer at the local grocery store. But what about additional ways to cool your home?
Ever thoughtful of our wallets and our resources, the EPA has posted a few low cost ideas (and no cost ideas) to help you lower your electric bill while staying cool. Their suggestions actually echo many of the points we’ve made in the past here at Allconnect. For instance, if you look back at our article on how to save money heating and cooling your home, you’ll see Allconnect, like the EPA, suggests you set your thermostat to a higher temperature while you’re not at home for extended periods. There’s no need to waste electricity chilling your home when nobody’s home. Save the energy, money and cool breeze for when you can enjoy them.
