Spring Time Energy Savings
March 26th, 2019 2:53 AM

Spring is here and South Florida is heating up! If you are new to Florida you might be in for a shock when you get your electric bill in the next few months. For those of you who are used to our very brief cool days, you know that it is important to keep on top of energy consumption. Here are a few things you can do to save money this time of year:

  1. Cool your home at 78 degrees with the thermostat fan on AUTO. For extra savings, set your thermostat to 82 degrees when you are away from home.
  2. Replace or clean your A/C filter on a regular schedule, such as the first of every month to reduce cooling costs. Make sure your a/c line is clean and is not clogged, and hire a professional to conduct an annual maintenance if you are not handy in this area.
  3. Turn off your ceiling fans when you leave the room.  Each fan running all the time is costing you extra every month. And turn off your lights!
  4. Lower your water heater temperature to 120 degrees as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy. This should save a few dollars every month as well.
  5. Limit the time your pool pump is running to six hours per day through the hot summer months.
These tips should help control your energy consumption costs - take care!
