Tips To Keep Your Home Cool

The Benton PUD recommends following this advice to save money and keep your home cool:

1. Use a microwave instead of a conventional electric range or oven.

2. Replace incandescent bulbs with compact flourescents, which use less energy and don't generate heat.

3. Close curtains during the day to keep the sun out.

4. Make sure your fireplace damper is tightly closed.

5. Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units. 

6. Clean or replace furnace filters.
