Frugal Living Tips
Change or clean all the filters on air conditioners. These should be cleaned at least once a month in hot weather. You should have your central AC cleaned and examined by service company.
NOTE: Find a company that has been in business for a long time with a good reputation. Avoid new companies that have no track record.
Raise the temperature of the AC; You will save about 5% for every degree you raise your thermostat over 70 degrees. Most people find they are quite comfortable at 75 degrees inside instead of 70. It is also less of a shock to your body to go outside into the hot air if the temperature in the house is not very cold.
Air out your basement - this is a good time to prevent mold and rot from taking over.
If your car has not been tuned in six months, get it tuned before summer travel.
