Close window shades and blinds
Help keep your home comfortable during Peak Time Saving Hours by blocking sunlight that would pass through your home's window.
Step by step:
- Close curtains and blinds. Preventing sunlight from entering your home will help keep your home cooler when you shut off your air conditioner during Peak Time Savings Hours. Make sure to target windows that face south or west, which get the most light in the summer.
- Raise thermostat a few degrees. Most people find they can raise the thermostat temperature by 3-4°F and still stay comfortable.
- Use fans instead of AC. Stay close to fans instead of using air conditioning to keep cool.
