The City of Tallahassee Utility Services recently offered summer energy saving tips for every household. Here are the top ten:

  • Close shades, drapes and blinds during the day
  • Wear lightweight clothing
  • Set the air conditioning  thermostat at 78 degrees or higher
  • Don’t choose a lower air conditioning temperature when you first turn it on
  • When weather is mild, use fans instead of the air conditioner
  • If you have ceiling fans, run the fans and the air conditioner at the same time
  • Use a microwave instead of the range/oven
  • Keep windows and doors closed while air conditioning
  • Change the air conditioner’s air filter monthly during heavy use
  • Arrange items in your refrigerator for quick removal and return
