Suggestions to help keep your home cooler 

  • Keep exterior doors closed 
  • Close your blinds & shades during the by 
  • When not in use turn off wall appliances & lights 
  • Limit oven or microwave usage 
  • It is best to wash and dry clothes at night 
  • Set your AC fan to the Auto position (Recommend temperature is between 72 and 75) 
  • If you turn A/C off during the day it will take at least 24 hours to cool to the correct temp 
  • Do not block the return air vent and keep vent clean.
