Stay cool, save money

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - It's hot, but that doesn't mean you need to lose your cool OR your cash trying to keep cool. 

Here's some tips to save cash while keeping cool:

Don't waste energy cooling an empty house. You can reap savings by turning up the thermostat just a few degrees while everyone's away.

Pull curtains and shades closed during daylight hours to keep the sun from heating up the inside of your home.

Combine forces. The EPA says if you raise your thermostat by two degrees and turn on a ceiling fan, you can trim cooling costs by up to 14 percent.
