Summer Energy-Saving Tips for North Texas Homeowners
The hottest days of summer are right around the corner here in the Lone Star State. In this heat, your A/C is probably working double-time. If your energy bills are a little higher than you’d like, we here at Cadenhead Servis Gas are here to bring you some relief. If you’re wondering how you can cut down a little on this season’s home comfort budget, keep reading.
Sign up for Automatic Delivery
If you’re not on a Cadenhead automatic delivery plan, now’s the time to sign up. Auto delivery helps you get more efficient deliveries and cut down on your fuel costs. More efficient deliveries mean better use of your home comfort budget.
Adjust Your Meal Plan
When it’s this hot outside, the last thing you want to do is stand over a heating stove or oven. All that excess heat will raise your home’s temperature. Opt for cold, instead of hot, meals. Enjoy salads, fruits, and sandwiches.
Schedule an A/C Tune-Up
Whether you have central or ductless A/C, getting an annual tune-up every year is a good idea. You’ll save money by maximizing your A/C’s efficiency, and you’ll circumvent potential problems down the road.
It’s time to get grilling! If you’re in the mood for a hot meal but want to avoid raising your indoor temperature and making your A/C work overtime, take the fun outside. Throw some burgers, hot dogs, or kebabs on your propane grill.
Program Your Thermostat
Did you know that adjusting your temperature can save you up to 10% on yearly energy costs? Taking advantage of this money-saving tip is easy! All you need to do is program your thermostat to be warmer when you’re asleep or away. Aim to keep your thermostat in the “warm zone” for at least eight hours a day.
