Stay cool.  Things that help when the summer gets hot.

 Keep heat out of the house.  You're trying to keep the house cool without running the air conditioning too much and creating a big electric bill. 

  • Consider when you run appliances that make the house hot: stove, oven, dryer, and lights.  
  • Remember your choices: microwave ovens create less heat than ovens, LED bulbs only create 15% of the heat of incandescent bulbs.
  • Keep the window shades down on the south and west sides of the house.  The sun's rays have a big effect.
  • Make sure your roof fan is running on those sunny days.

Power failures can occur anytime during the year.

Being prepared ahead of time is the key.
