Save on Energy Costs this Summer

- 10:00 am - June 14th, 2024

The days are getting long and the hum of our air conditioners is becoming second nature, but just because the temperature outside is heating up does not mean your energy bills have to! Utilizing energy conservation practices can help improve your comfort and lower your energy expenses this summer.

Cool off your summer energy expenses this year with these conservation tips from your friends at Glider Oil!


  1. Cook outside: Conventional ovens create heat inside your home and force your AC to work harder. Try cooking outside to avoid adding unnecessary heat inside.

  2. Use your windows: On milder summer nights you can naturally cool your home by opening windows to avoid running your air conditioner.

  3. Schedule an AC tune-up: Air conditioning tune-ups can increase your equipment’s efficiency and reduce monthly utility costs.

  4. Use ceiling fans: Ceiling fans use considerably less power than air conditioners. Make sure you switch your fans to spin in a counterclockwise direction to create a down draft and cool your home!

  5. Clean or replace your AC filter: A dirty air filter can force your air conditioner to work harder and drive-up energy costs.

  6. Seal spaces: Caulk or seal gaps around your windows and doors to keep the cool air inside.

  7. Draw blinds or shades: During the day you should draw your blinds or shades to block out the sun and keep the heat outside your home.

  8. Use your thermostat efficiently: Setting your thermostat too low can overwork your AC and increase your cooling bills.

  9. Don’t cool an empty house: When you are away from home, set your thermostat to a higher temperature to conserve energy.

  10. Dry your laundry outside: Dryers use a lot of energy. Try hanging your clothes outside to dry them.
