SEASONS AND SAVINGS

Leaves are starting to fall which means my energy bill is going to start falling as well! When the seasons change whether it is from Summer to Fall, Fall to Winter, Winter to Spring, or Spring to Summer it is the best time to save money! When the temperatures begin to change that is when you must make your move! Turn your thermostat up as the Summer changes to Fall and your thermostat down when Winter changes to Spring.
