How to Save Energy in the Summer

how to save energy in the summer
It’s hot out here!

Seriously, it’s really hot! So hot, Pocahontas can’t walk on the ground because the pavement is burning her wittle (little) paws.

Summertime is when our electricity bill gets a huge boost (a con for home dwellers, but a pro for the electicity companies).

According to Power Home Renovating Group, “If every American home replaced just one light with an ENERGY STAR light, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, about $700 million in annual energy costs, and prevent 9 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equivalent to the emissions of about 800,000 cars.” In itself, that gives me the drive I needed to make changes in the way I use energy (and a smaller energy bill persuades me, too).

Here are some more super easy ways to save energy while beating the heat that anyone can start doing today!

Do you suffer with high electricity bills? Have you implemented any of the above energy saving methods above, lately?

Till next time,

    Whitney, these are all great energy saving ideas for the summer. Thanks so much for sharing. Being in the insulation industry, I know that proper insulation saves a homeowner so much in energy costs too. Everything you mentioned can also help!
