Spring has sprung in Western Indiana, and with it comes the promise of warmer days. But as the temperatures rise, so can your energy bills. At Edwards Royal Comfort, we want to help you stay cool and comfortable this summer without breaking the bank. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of summer energy saving tips and tricks to keep your home nice and cool while saving you a pretty penny!

Simple Steps for Big Savings

Saving money is a big deal, and it starts with some simple tips. Here’s what we recommend:

Seal the Deal

Check your home for air leaks around windows, doors, and electrical outlets. Sealing these gaps can prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from entering, reducing your HVAC system’s workload.

Thermostat Tweaks

Adjust your programmable thermostat for optimal efficiency. Aim for 78 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and cooler temperatures at night when sleeping. Every degree lower can make a big difference in your energy bill.

Embrace the Shade

West-facing windows can let in much afternoon heat. Use awnings, blinds, or strategically planted trees to shade your home in the afternoon. This will help keep your interior cooler and reduce your AC’s need to work overtime.

Change Your Filter

A dirty air filter restricts airflow and makes your HVAC system work harder. Replace your air filter every month during peak cooling season to maintain optimal efficiency.


Ceiling fans can create a windchill effect, making you feel cooler without lowering the thermostat. Additionally, turn off exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms when not in use, as they can pull conditioned air out of your home.
