10 Ways to Save on Your Electricity Bill This Summer

One of the best things about living in Savannah is our lovely weather year round. As we continue to approach summer, temperatures will continue to rise. While the temperature rise is unpreventable, a rise in your electricity bill is something you can control! Check out these 10 tips to help keep your bill down and your summer fun UP!

1.) Use Fans Instead of A/C

For smaller rooms such as your living room area, using the fan is an economical way to decrease costs. Fans require a lot less energy to operate than your thermostat. 

2.) Spend Free Time Outside

Spending some of your free time outside is a sure way to get some fresh air without having to blast your A/C. Embrace the warm weather and enjoy a bit of sunshine while keeping the air off. 

3.) Keep Doors and Vents Closed

Closing off the parts of your home that are not being used is an effective way to keep costs down throughout the year. This stops unnecessary air flow from being distributed.

4.) Unplug Electronics That Are Not Being Used

It's so easy to forget about that phone charger in the wall or the charger for your tablet. However, leaving these electronics plugged in can add up very quickly. Take a few seconds in your day to unplug unused cords from the wall.

5.) Hang Wet Clothes to Dry

Hanging your clothes up to dry is a another easy way to save money on your electricity bill. Allow your clothes to soak up the sun so that you can save more money.

6.) Use Rain As a Free Water Source

We have been experiencing a lot of rain in our area. Consider collecting buckets of rainwater to lower electricity costs and cut back on the cost of taking care of your lawn.

7.) Keep Doors and Vents Shut

You can't be in all part of your home at one time; closing off the vents will help to save money for other expenses.

8.) Close Your Blinds and Curtains During the Day
