A ceiling fan is a great way to keep electric bills and energy output low during the summer months. You can save up to 40% on your bills! However, it is important to be aware that professional installation is required, in order to have maximum energy efficiency.

3. Have Dimmers Installed on Indoor Lights and Timers on Outdoor Lights
Dimmers on indoor lightning can decrease your energy output simply because when an overhead light is not turned on all the way less energy is expended. Similarly, a common misuse of energy is outdoor lightning that gets left on during the day. Install timers so that outdoor lights are only being used for their needed time slots.
4. Schedule Regular Maintenance of Water Heater and Air Condition Unit
In order to remain at peak energy efficiency, it is important to have your units under a regular maintenance plan. This will allow your technician to prevent and solve problems before they show up on your bill!
5. Surge Protection
When it comes to your appliances use surge protectors! Don’t become victim to expanded energy when your devices are not even turned on. Surge protection has many benefits including decreasing your energy expenditure.
