Increased temperatures raise bills
Every day there is a constant battle over the temperature in my house. With outside temperatures reaching into the 90’s daily, energy bills are rising, and people are inevitably looking for ways to save pennies anyway they can. I, too, am one of those penny-penchers. I once read that keeping a house cool accounts for 10-20 percent of your average annual electric bill. Once I read that, I did certain things, like turning off the lights when no one was in the room. I adjusted the thermostat to a higher temperature during the times no one was home. I knew these adjustments would make a difference.
