The average homeowner spends about $1,900 a year on energy costs. With an existing home, you can lower your energy bills and help save the environment by doing a number of things:
• Set your air conditioner to 79 degrees when you are home and 85 degrees when you are away or sleeping.
• Do your laundry efficiently by using cold water.
• Replace air conditioner filter on a monthly basis to increase the performance of your air conditioner.
• Unplug electronic devises and charges when they aren’t in use.
