How To Save On Your Energy Bill This Summer

Published on June 1st, 2020

It’s only May, but the summer heat has already hit the Chicagoland area. While we are all excited to enjoy some sunshine this season, the warmer weather does come with a substantial increase in your energy bill. Use these easy tips and tricks from our electrician near Kenilworth to save on your electricity bill while staying cool.

Save On Your Energy Bill This Summer

Turn On Your Ceiling Fan

Your air conditioning system uses more electricity than any other appliance in your home. Using a ceiling fan alongside the air conditioner can lower your room temperature up to 4 degrees! Installing ceiling fans is easy with the help of a Current Electrical Contractors electrician and helps reduce your bill in summer and winter.

Invest In A Smart Thermostat

Installing a programmable thermostat is an energy-efficient tool that allows you to set different temperatures for different times throughout the day. This means you can raise your home temperature a few degrees when you’re not home to save on your bill or lower the temperature overnight to keep you cool while you sleep. Contact your local electrician near Kenilworth to install your smart thermostat today!

Install Blinds & Drapes

The summer sun may be stronger than you think. Hanging a window treatment like blinds and drapes can reduce heat gain by up to 77% according to The Department of Energy.

These three tips will keep your house perfectly cool this summer and save you money in the long run. If you need more ideas on how to lower your electricity bill, contact the Current Electrical Contractors today!
