While you are doing your Spring Cleaning around the house, don’t forget these simple tips to keep your home energy-efficient!

  • Change your air filter to keep your system running efficiently and not out undo strain on the equipment.
  • Get your air conditioning system tuned up before summer arrives.
  • Consider using ceiling fans to cool your home as the weather begins to get warmer.
  • Use compact fluorescent light bulbs because they give off less heat and won’t warm your home as fast as other light bulbs.
  • Use the microwave whenever possible instead of your oven to keep your home cooler.
