Eversource: How to save money this summer

Published on

Eversource is encouraging customers to act now to save money and energy to help avoid a spike in seasonal electricity usage. Learn how you can beat the heat this summer with this advice from Eversource.

  • Use the new Cooling Calculator on Eversource.com.
  • Keep air conditioners set at or near 78 degrees. Every degree higher on the thermostat will use 1-3% less electricity.
  • Don’t block airflow. Keep air vents clear of obstructions and consider using vent deflectors to direct and increase the reach of cooled air.
  • Operate appliances during the cooler parts of the day, conserving energy by using appliances when there is less demand.
  • Keep blinds closed to prevent unwanted heat through windows.
  • Switch to ENERGY STAR® certified LED lights.
  • Set ceiling fans to rotate counterclockwise and at a higher speed in the summer to circulate the breeze more effectively. Remember to turn the fan off when leaving the room.
  • Be sure to choose the right size when purchasing an air conditioning unit. An oversized or undersized AC unit is less effective and uses more energy.
