Quick tips for summer savings

Summer is here, and that means sweltering temperatures are never far! Fortunately, there’s no need to sweat your energy bill. By understanding how usage impacts cost, you can make small changes that’ll help you save BIG!

Put ceiling fans to work while in the room to make a space feel about 4-6 degrees cooler.

Utilize blinds, curtains, shutters, and solar screens to keep out sunlight

Service your HVAC 2x a year and remember to change out your air filter regularly.

Seal up any leaks around doors and windows

Washing clothes in cold water makes every load more efficient and could lower your bill.

Check your insulation, less than the recommended minimum could allow heat to enter your home.


You can monitor and manage your usage through your SmartHub account via the Usage Explorer tool. You can compare two bills’ worth of usage history as far back as 13 months to see how your bill varies and set a proper budget.
