10 ways to save energy and money this summer via pacific power:
Set your air conditioner thermostat as high as comfortable – we recommend 78ºF or higher when you’re at home, and 85ºF when you’re gone. Keep inside air vents clear from furniture and other objects.
Have your central air conditioner tuned up and clean or replace filters monthly for more efficient operation.
Minimize indoor heat: run the dryer and dishwasher at night on hot days and let your dishes air dry. Avoid heat-generating incandescent lighting and use a microwave, toaster oven or outdoor grill instead of the oven. It's best to avoid the use of major appliances between 2 and 8 p.m.
Set your water heater to 120ºF.
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 keep your home a little cooler.

You may find you only need to run your pool filter six hours a day. Install a timer to control the length of time that the pool pump cycles on.

"If you are looking for a great realtor that will help you from start to finish, Josh Waters is your guy! Not only did he do an awesome job at selling our house quickly for exactly what we wanted, he also helped so much in the beginning with repairs that needed to be done before listing our house.
