This is a compensated post, however all opinions are entirely my own.
Do you have any incredible energy saving tips to help beat the summer heat? Could you use $10,000 in Lennox® heating and air conditioning equipment, a one year supply of ice cream, or tickets to your closest water park? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Lennox® is hosting the Lennox Energy Savings Superstar Contest. Heat indexes this summer have soared about 100F in some U.S. cities, and it has been tough to manage the heat. Lennox® wants to know about your energy savings ideas for a chance to win one of several incredible prizes.
Last summer when we finished building our house, we moved in almost two weeks before the air conditioning unit was installed; the August Kentucky heat was sweltering. The dates kept getting pushed back because the electricity was delayed being permanently installed. We tried every trick to cool our house and ourselves. Fortunately, we insulated the house well enough that our central air system has been very efficient since it was turned on. We still adjust the thermostat when we’re not home and do everything we can to keep our energy usage low. This really helps us when it comes to saving money on our energy bills. We don’t want to waste electricity, so we try and do as much as we can, such as turning lights off when we don’t need them etc… I was recently talking to a friend about this, and she says that her family are terrible at switching things off. So because of this, her energy bill is always so huge. I suggested to her that she might want to consider switching providers (such as these light companies with no deposit) to help her not spend as much. I was thinking of telling her it’s fairly easy to switch a light off, but I didn’t know if she would be happy with me telling her the obvious.
