4 Tips for Saving Energy in Waukegan This Summer 

Spring is beautiful for more than a few reasons: flowers bloom, you can open windows for crisp air and your power bill is usually at its most economical. That’s because you’re not utilizing your heater or air conditioner.

But as temps begin to rise, so do your energy costs. Here are some ideas for saving energy in the U.S. and keeping payments lower.

1. Schedule Annual AC Maintenance

Giving your air conditioning system a yearly tune-up can help it operate more efficiently and cut down costs. Changing out your air filter will help keep energy charges low.

If your HVAC equipment has experienced better days, spring is a good time to replace it. The energy-saving options in modern cooling systems is a definite plus in keeping your electricity expenses down.

2. Start with Your Thermostat

There’s a straightforward way you can save up to 10% on home comfort costs. Just dial your thermostat back 7–10 degrees for 8 hours a day.

Understanding how to efficiently work your thermostat is the smartest way to reduce energy bills in the summer.

    • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible when you’re around at home. Think about it this way, the lower the difference between exterior temperatures and indoor temperatures, the less expensive your energy expense will be.
    • When you’re away, set the thermostat to a significantly higher temperature or shut it off. You shouldn’t have to cool an empty house.

3. Take Advantage of Other Ways to Cool Your House

You can do several other things to help keep your residence comfortable:

    • Use a ceiling fan—By turning on a ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat setting an average of 4 degrees with no reduction in comfort. Have your fan spin counterclockwise when it’s warm out, which drives cool air upward. This distributes cool air more evenly when you’re in the room.
    • Keep blinds shut—Sunlight quickly converts to heat as it moves through windows. Keep your residence cooler by closing blinds and curtains when you’re not staying in sunny spaces.

4. Look Into Using a Smart Thermostat

You’re out of the house and abruptly realize you neglected to turn up the thermostat. Then you think about it the full day!

Smart thermostats pick up on your routine and move the temp when you’re not around to help you save on your bills. You can also set the temp from anywhere with your phone.
