Save money on spring energy bills

Posted: Updated:

When the weather warms up, keep a few spring energy tips in mind. Following through with them will keep your energy bills low for the season.

  • Keep fan blades dust-free. Switch the direction of the fan so the air moves upward, keeping the room cooler with constant air flow.
  • Make sure sliding glass door tracks are clean. A dirty track ruins the seal, creates gaps, and lets how air in and cool air out.
  • Clean dirt and pet hair off the refrigerator condenser coils. That way, air can circulate freely without the motor having to work harder.
  • Because your home heats up during the day, open windows at night when the temperature drops. Then keep them closed during the afternoon to seal in that cooler air.
