Avoid peak energy times
To save money on your energy bills during the spring and to prevent electricity outages, avoid running appliances during peak hours, which is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Use your windows to your advantage
If you are not already using your air conditioner or during the colder night time temps, you should open your windows to create a cross-breeze. Doing so will create a natural cooling effect that will flow throughout your home. The springtime is also a good time to change your window coverings from heavy drapes to lighter colored curtains to save more energy.
Replace your inefficient air conditioner
Replacing old air conditioners with a new, energy-efficient model is the best way to save on energy costs. You should consider replacing your AC system when it’s over 10 years old. Contact a professional air conditioning company to determine which AC replacement is best for your specific home.

Fans are an economical way of keep you cool. Cooling your home with ceiling fans will allow you to raise your thermostat four degrees. This can help lower your electricity bills without sacrificing overall comfort.
When you cook with a stovetop or oven, you can end up heating up your kitchen and connecting rooms by several degrees. Save your air conditioner from working overtime by grilling outdoors whenever possible.
Set your thermostat to the ideal temp
For every degree you set your thermostat above 78 degrees during warmer weather, you could save an estimated 6-8% off your energy bill during the spring and summer.
Service your air conditioner
Every spring your air conditioner should receive annual maintenance to ensure its working efficiently and to maintain your warranty. It’s also very important to check your air conditioner’s air filters. Clean filters in an HVAC system promote efficient airflow, which can reduce energy consumption by as much as 20%.
