Let the Fresh Air In!

Your home might be suffering from locked-in syndrome, from being locked down tight all winter. The colder air leads homeowners to batten down the hatches so to speak and reduce any leaks inside to the outside air. Well, now that spring is here, time to open your wonderful home back up to the world! Spring is an excellent time to turn off your AC, open your doors and windows, and let the natural breeze blow down your bottom line. Your spring energy bills can be cooled by the cool spring breeze.

Fan of Fans

The hidden power of ceiling fans cannot be undersold when it comes to reducing your spring energy bills. It’s a proven fact that ceiling fans can reduce your energy costs by up to 30% to 40% in some instances. Springtime is the perfect time to turn on those fans to again circulate some of the air that’s been lying stagnant throughout the winter. Just be careful remember that fans don’t actually reduce the temperature. They produce a wind effect that can make it feel cooler. So turn those off when you’re not home or using the room they are fanning to further save on energy costs.
