Cooling Your House Without Breaking the Bank


Keeping your home cool this summer doesn’t have to come with an outrageous energy bill. Here are three ways to cut costs without sacrificing comfort:

– Landscape strategically. Low-lying shrubs that keep the ground cool and strategically planted trees that shade your home can reduce energy use by 25%.

– Buy a programmable thermostat. This will allow you to program your AC to automatically adjust the temperature when no one is home and cool it down before someone returns.

– Upgrade your windows. Energy-efficient dual-pane windows keep cool air in and hot air out, making less work for your AC.
