Today's issue is all about summer energy-saving tips. Let's get started by featuring our first tip in the column section.
Set your air conditioner thermostat as high as comfortable - try by starting at about 78 degrees or higher when you're at home, and 85 degrees when you're gone. Keep inside air vents clear from furniture and other objects.
Email me some of your tips on how you try saving-energy during the summer months so I can pass them along to our follow readers.

Handy Hint #1
Keep the blinds and windows closed during the day and open at night. This is a no-cost way to keep your home a little cooler.
Window, ceiling and whole-house fans are also low-cost ways to stay comfortable.
Handy Hint #2
Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use. Plug home electronics, such as TVs, DVD players and computers into power strips and turn off the power strips when the equipment is not in use.
