Put the summer energy bill on ice

(Continued)

Ada —

Use a microwave, grill or the stovetop to cook meals on hot days rather than turning on the oven. Even stereos, televisions and computers contribute to the amount of heat in the house, so by paying attention to activities such as running the dishwasher or doing laundry, you can control your summertime home energy use.

Finally, consider installing window coverings such as drapes, blinds or awnings to block the heat. According to www.energy.gov, window treatments can lower energy use in your house and can be a less expensive alternative than buying new energy-efficient windows.

 For more information on how to save on your energy bill, contact your local county Extension office.
