Tips for Savings During the Spring

If you changed the direction of your ceiling fans to go clockwise this winter, it’s time to switch them back. When your fans rotate counterclockwise, it creates a downward flow of air, so you feel cooler.

Your air conditioner has likely accumulated a lot of dust from being dormant in the winter, so replace your AC filter before you start cooling your home.

Take advantage of those cool spring nights by opening the windows at night to let the cool air in, then closing them during the day to keep the warm air out.

Plant deciduous trees on the south-facing side of your home to provide shade in the spring and summer. When the trees lose their leaves, the sun will shine through and warm your house in the fall and winter.
