While summer doesn’t officially start until next month, it is certainly starting to feel like summer in Las Vegas. This week, temperatures are expected to hit 100 degrees, or come pretty close.
Here are some tips to help you keeps your energy costs down while the temperatures soar:
Keep your air conditioner at 78 degrees while you are home and while you are away, turn it up to 85 degrees. For every degree over 78, you can expect to save anywhere from one-three percent on your bill. By turning the temperature down even five degrees, you can use up to 40 percent more energy.
Clean your air vents monthly and change your air filters regularly. The dust they collect can hinder the flow of air.
