It may be August, but the temperatures are still warming up! How can you keep cool as the summer winds down without breaking the bank?

Your air conditioner might be wasting more money than you think! Make sure the area around the outside and inside of your AC units are clear and remove any loose toys or plants surrounding the area! Replace your filters regularly (at least four times a year)! Ensure that you don’t have AC leaking out of cracks in your windows and doors. Weather protection strips might be just the thing for your home! Consider investing in a programmable thermostat so you can monitor the temperature of your home when there are people in it, and when you are away.
