Most people think of saving energy in the cold months but it is equally expensive to keep your residence cool and comfortable in the summer saving energy and keeping you comfortable are not mutually exclusive and it is easy to obtain by following a few simple steps.
- First, be energy conscious. Turning off the lights and equipment not in use is a great way to save energy. Take advantage of the natural daylight instead of using indoor lighting.
- Next, cover your windows with window treatments especially on the sides of your home with the most sun exposure. Keeping the blinds closed helps to block heat from the home during the times of day when the sun is most intense.

- Install a programmable thermostat to automate your HVAC and save energy when you are away from home or during cooler evening hours.
