Maintenance Tip: Save on Energy Costs

  • Raise the temperature slowly to keep your bill lower. Quickly raising your temperature set point activates the heat strip, which uses tons of energy
  • Set your thermostat to 78-80 degrees during the day and 76-78 degrees at night to save on cooling costs.
  • Close your exterior doors and windows when the heating or AC is on.
  • Use ceiling fans or floor fans to cool off for less.
  • Switch your ceiling fan to turn in a counter-clockwise direction in the summer; in the winter, run it at low speed but clockwise. Ceiling fans use no more electricity than a standard light bulb. However, be sure to turn fans off when you leave - they only cool people, not rooms.
