  • Seal openings and cracks around windows and doors.. we often think this is only an issue in winter but the same thing can happen in warmer weather.

  • Run fans only when you are in the room… Fans create a wind chill factor and thus only cool you down.  Fans only help while you are in the room otherwise its a waste of electricity. 
  • As we transition to warmer weather its okay to lower the water temperature to 120 F in your water heater…    this helps you save money. (consult with a professional before making such changes)
