How To save On Your Air Conditioning Bill
C'est Chaud! It's August. In Louisiana, that means brutal heat and high utility bills. There are steps you can take to cut costs.
#1 raise the thermostat. When you set the thermostat a little higher, every degree can save 3 to 5 percent on your bill over the course of the summer.
#2 Install ceiling fans. They don't cool your house, but they make you FEEL cooler. That's the whole point, right?
#3 Keep your shades or blinds closed. Lights are cheaper than A/C.
#4 Programmable thermostats are a great idea.
