3 Tips That Will Help Keep Your Summer Utility Bills Down

Keeping your utility bill down this summer is as easy as remembering a few handy tips.

If you want to keep your utility bills down during these hot summer months, here are a few handy tips you can use. 

First, hang some good window coverings. There are a lot of great draperies and shades you can buy that will block the incoming sunlight and keep your HVAC unit from being overworked. 

Also, make sure your window seals are clear of any dirt or soot—just the tiniest little bit can break the seal and allow hot air into your home while letting cold air escape. Check your windows and doors to see if they need to be caulked or anything needs to be weather-stripped. 

Next, get a door sweep. Most of the time, there’s a tiny gap underneath homes’ door frames, so getting a door sweep will reduce the amount of cool air that’s able to escape. 

Lastly, check your ductwork. Oftentimes, homeowners are unaware that their ducts are leaking. To check your ductwork, you can either hire a professional to do it for you or get underneath your crawl space and do it yourself. Any leakage can be fixed by applying tape.
