Electric bills always go up in the summer time, especially with how much we have to use air conditioning in San Antonio. On Time Elmer tries to help by recommending energy-efficient air conditioning units for our customers. But there are other steps you can take to cut down on the amount you spend on electricity.
One of the better tools is from San Antonio’s utility company, CPS Energy. It has a Home Energy Calculator tool that is free to use and only takes ten minutes or so. You can find out how your energy costs compare year-to-year, which appliances are using the most electricity, and some simple steps to cut down on your energy use.
