5 Ways to Save Money This Summer

Summer is coming – and while we all love spending lazy days on the beach, there are small to large expenses specific to this time of year that can really pile up if we aren’t careful!

At ALPS, we believe in managing your home like a business. So here are 5 ways to save money over the summer season, straight from our expert technicians:

Turn off the A/C!

It’s a given that summer is hot, and we aren’t saying to turn your home into a sauna, but the bills that get racked up while you’re blasting cold air into your bedroom can really add up!! Turn on your A/C sparingly – for example, only during the hottest times of the day or at night. Open a few windows in between A/C blasts and invest in a fan to keep the air circulating and fresh.

Use the daylight!

Take advantage of the extended daylight hours by keeping your lights off longer. Less indoor lights mean a leaner electricity bill at the end of each month – which means a heavier wallet!

Avoid the dryer!

Cut back even MORE by air drying your clothes outdoors in the summer heat. Not only will this ease your electricity usage, but it will also give your clothes a nice sun-baked scent that will make them that much fresher!

Install solar panels!

Switch your outdoor lighting situation to solar. It’s an affordable change that you can pick up at most home and garden outlets. It’s not just light on your electricity bill either – it’s good for the environment too!

Fill in any air gaps!

Don’t let any of your home’s precious cool air slip through the cracks… Literally! Inspect your doorways and windows for any improper insulation. If you have any cracks that aren’t being sealed up, you might be letting out some of your A/C’s cold air. It’s an affordable fix that will keep your home cool and comfortable!
