Save up cool air before Peak Time Savings Hours begin
If you'll be home during a peak event, consider precooling your home to stay comfortable while minimizing air conditioning use during the afternoon and evening hours.
Step by step:
- Cool your home in the morning. Turn on the AC in the morning, when it's cooler outside, and let it run up until Peak Time Savings Hours.
- Turn off your AC during Peak Time Savings Hours. Even though you'll turn off your AC, you'll still enjoy the cool air your home has stored up.
- Keep your cool. Close your shades on south and west-facing windows and use fans to help your home stay cool.
