Higher summer temperatures typically encourage homeowners to think about new ways to save on their electricity bill. One of the easiest ways to lower your monthly energy bill is to improve the seals protecting your home.
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that homeowners concentrate on maintaining seals around doors, windows, vents, attics, ducts and structural joints.

This is just one of many ways through which you and your family can cut electricity costs this summer. Check back on this blog for more tips on reducing energy use and living more sustainably.
