Save up cool air before a Conservation Day
If you'll be home during a peak event, consider precooling your home to stay comfortable while minimizing air conditioning use during the afternoon and evening hours.
Step by step:
- Cool your home in the morning. Turn on the AC in the morning leading up to the peak hours.
- Turn off your AC during peak hours. Even though you turn off your AC, you'll still enjoy the cool air you have stored up.
- Maximize the cooling effect. Close your shades and stay close to fans to help you stay cool.
