Four Easy Ways to Stay Cool and Save Money this Summer
Summer is starting to heat up and despite rising temperatures, there are easy ways to stay cool and save money this season. The average homeowner spends nearly $2,000 per year on home energy bills of which 25% is electricity consumed by air conditioning units. From at-home cooking, grilling and entertaining, to staying in shape or dealing with end of summer stresses like dorm move ins, anyone can turn the thermostat up and cool down, all while saving money. We at Lasko Fans are here to let you in on the best ways to keep your cool:
Create indoor/outdoor airflow: Summer is the season for outdoor entertaining, with many families celebrating key holidays and milestones like graduations from high school and college. Entertainers can keep cool air moving by strategically placing a fan with a head that tilts fully back, like the Lasko 18” Pedestal Fan, to create ongoing airflow throughout multiple rooms and spaces.
Turn the thermostat up: Throughout the day and night, simply raise the thermostat a few degrees and add one or more fans for up to 10% home energy savings without sacrificing comfort. Use a portable, easy-to-move fan that can go from the living room to the bedroom with ease. Enjoy those summer days and nights without sweating the costs to stay cool.
Stay in summer shape: The hotter weather means days outside enjoying the sunshine, including trips to the community pool or beach. It’s easy to stay in “summer-shape” by keeping the workout routine going at home versus spending money on gym memberships. From pilates and yoga to HIIT training, spinning and stretching, keep a small fan in any home workout area to help body temps stay in check during warmup, workout and cool down. Lasko’s Space-Saving HVB™ Oscillating High Velocity Blower Fan is the perfect workout partner featuring the power of a 20″ high velocity fan in a streamlined body with a remote control and one-touch convenience that won’t interrupt workout routines.
Move in and cool down: As students savor the break before the next school year or enter the working world, it’s key to stay on budget and prepare for the next chapter in life. Every dorm room, campus home or first “after college” set of digs, which often times do not offer A/C, can benefit from the power of fan cooling, allowing users to save more money for other necessities and activities. Our array of fans offer a variety of products to help cool off consumers’ homes without sweating monthly budgets.
