WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Following a record-breaking winter, every Hoosier is eagerly awaiting consistently warmer temperatures. As temps rise, energy saving tips can help you save some money and keep things safe around the home.

Duke Energy offers a variety of information to help residents, said Gayle Lanier, Duke Energy’s senior vice president and chief customer officer.

“As many of our customers tackle spring cleaning projects, it’s also an opportune time to consider ways to use energy more efficiently and keep safety first as we transition to warmer weather,” Lanier stated in a press release to News 18.

Warm weather energy saving tips, provided by Duke Energy:

  • Set your thermostat on the highest comfortable setting. If you’re leaving for the day, turn it up a couple of degrees.
  • Change your air filters regularly. A dirty air filter makes a cooling system work harder, which uses more energy.
  • The arrival of spring means that summer is around the corner. Make sure your HVAC system is ready to keep you cool by having it checked by a qualified heating and air conditioning contractor.
  • Close blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest part of the day to keep the sun’s rays from heating your house.
