Energy Saving Tips

Ways to save
on Electricity

Summers in Texas can be extra hot, causing most of your home’s energy to go toward your A/C. But no need to sweat it. These simple tips can help you stay cool all summer and save year-round.


Tips

  • Raising your thermostat just a few degrees (or more while you’re away) will help save energy.
  • Running your ceiling fans counterclockwise will help push down a cool breeze.
  • If you see a gap between your door and floor, consider adding a door sweep to block out the hot air.
  • Keep the sun’s heat out by sealing any air leaks and keeping window coverings closed during the daytime.
  • Avoid using the oven or stove on hot days. Air fryers and slow cookers use less energy.
  • Change out or clean your air filter at least every few months (sooner if you have pets or allergies). It’ll help your A/C run efficiently.
