Smart Savings from IDT Energy

As the weather starts to warm up, it’s important to start thinking about your summer electrical expenses.  A few key actions can help you to save money while staying cool through the summer whether you use IDT Energy or another company.

If you have central air conditioning in the house, keep your thermostat set at 78 degrees.  The statistics on these savings are amazing – for each degree above 78 that you program your thermostat, you can save an additional 6-7% on your monthly cooling costs.  Now that’s savings!

Ceiling fans can make a huge difference in heating and cooling costs.  During hot weather months, a ceiling fan will create a great breeze while circulating air in the house.  It is often enough, without even needing to turn on the air conditioning unit.  Make sure, as well, to close blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest part of the day. This will keep the hot sun from heating the house.
