With temperatures anticipated to rise into the 90's this week, here are some helpful tips to reduce energy consumption and keep your home cooler:

  • Turn off lights and appliances that are not in use
  • Close blinds, shades and draperies facing the sunny side of your home
  • Close doors and shut vents to unused rooms in your home
  • Delay heat related tasks like drying clothes or using dishwasher until later in the day
  • Unplug unneccessary appliances
