Time to Spring Clean Your Energy Use and Save

There’s something in the air, come springtime, that makes you want to get cleaning. To start fresh. To make what is old new again! And while you’re taking care of the closets and the kitchen and the garage and the yard, there’s one thing you don’t want to miss—your energy bill.

When was the last time you took a good look at what you’re really paying for? Or how much energy you’re using? We’ve got a few ways to help you save energy every month by switching to solar and reducing the amount of energy you use on a daily basis.

Keep Your Cool as Spring Energy Bills Soar
Why might you notice that your electric bill is higher than usual in the Spring? It’s the heat! The hotter it gets outside, the more you’re cranking the air conditioner, or turning on fans (and forgetting to turn them off). We all use more energy as the days get hotter, but what can you do to keep your bill low?

Mind Your Thermostat
Keep your air conditioner set at a temperature very close to what it is outside. The bigger the difference between the number you set it at and the outside temperature, the harder it will have to work to reach that number. And of course, turn off fans when you leave a room.

Spring for Solar
While saving money by keeping the thermostat set high and trying to remember to turn off fans is a good start, at the end of the day we all want to be comfortable and enjoy the spring and summer months. There is one way to reduce your energy use and save money—and that’s going solar.
