Five energy-saving hacks for summer

You’re ready for longer days and sunshine. Is your house ready, too? Here are a few tips to save you money and energy during the warmer months:
1. Check that all your HVAC registers are clear and uncovered.
2. Do your laundry, cooking and baking in the morning or at night.
3. Switch your ceiling fan to run counterclockwise.
4. Raise the thermostat a few degrees when you go to bed or leave the house.
5. Move the garage refrigerator into an air conditioned space like the basement or mudroom where it won't have to work as hard to keep cool.
