Ashlyn Myers How to cut energy costs this summer Summer is a season of rest and re- laxation. Warm air and abundant sun- shine often inspire a laid back feel- ing that lasts until the leaves begin to fall off the trees in early autumn. But summer also can be hard on home- owners, particularly in regard to their monthly energy bills. As summer heats up, energy bills may rise right along with the mer- cury in the backyard thermome- ter. Warmer temperatures outside compel many people to rely more and more on their air conditioners, leading to a spike in energy bills. Fortunately, there are ways to low- er summertime energy bills with- out sacrificing comfort on hot days and nights. • Upgrade your insulation. Peo- ple who own their homes can con- duct an inspection of their homes' insulation to see if it can be up- graded. Direct Energy, which pro- vides energy to more than four mil- lion home and business customers across North America, recommends sealing any drafts around windows or doors with weather stripping or spray foam. Sealing drafts can en- sure cool air stays inside the home on hot days, potentially preventing homeowners from having to run their air conditioners on full blast to keep their homes cool. • Upgrade your thermostat. Homeowners who don't already have a smart thermostat can in- stall one to help lower their ener- gy costs. The Alliance to Save Ener- gy notes that such thermostats can help homeowners optimize their homes' energy usage. Smart ther- mostats allow homeowners to con- trol the climate in their homes re- motely while also showing home- owners their energy consumption in real time. Smart thermostats can show homeowners just how long it takes to cool a home, allowing homeowners to keep their air condi- tioners off while no one is home but still ensuring the home is comfort- able, and that no energy was need- lessly wasted to make it so, when they arrive home at night. • Reconsider how you use your appliances. notes that washing machines and dish- washers consume the same amount of water and energy whether these appliances are full or not. Wait to use washing machines and dish- washers until you have full loads. This provides more bang for your buck. In addition, hand-dry dish- es and hang clothes on a backyard clothesline to save even more ener- gy. Energy costs tend to rise when summer hits full swing. But a few simple measures can help home- owners cut costs without sacrific- ing comfort.
