You might not be thinking about it with today's rainy weather but when it starts getting hot, your energy bills go up.
We have a few tips to keep you cool without breaking the bank.
First make sure you unplug things you aren't using, like cell phone chargers.
Next, check for leaks in doors or windows that could let cool air out and caulk them if necessary.
Also keeping your thermostat at 78 degrees is the recommended temperature to lower energy costs.
The U.S. Department of Energy says heating and cooling accounts for more than half of the energy-use in a typical u-s home.
That makes it the largest energy expense for many Americans.
