Spring is finally upon us, and many people are relishing in the chance to leave the house without a coat or wear open-toed shoes for the first time. While these are exciting traditions that come with the changing seasons, it will only get warmer, and soon enough the heat will be uncomfortable and you will wonder why you ever missed this season.
Still, it would be even worse if you forgot to adjust your thermostat and ended up with an uncomfortably hot house, not to mention super-high electric bills this summer. No matter if your house has a manual thermostat or programmable model, it's important that you remember to turn the heat off for the duration of the season.
That way, you don't have to worry about wasting energy by heating a house that is already too warm, which would only make your air conditioner have to work harder. Even if you think that yours is off, this is a great time to take another look at that dial and make sure that you're not unintentionally wasting a lot of energy and money.
Once you've done that, you can get your home ready for the warmer temperatures. Perhaps it's time to open the windows and let the fresh air come in and invigorate your house. No matter what, this is a good moment to get out that electric fan and have it plugged in and ready for that first big heat wave that should be coming in a matter of days. Don't be unprepared for summer, get ahead of it.
