So what can you do to remain comfortable and save on your Summer energy bill?
Summer energy bills are typically the second highest bill people receive during the year. Try switching on a fan instead of the air-conditioning. Fans have a much lower wattage and assists to keep you cool by evaporating the heat from the surface of your skin. If you haven't installed a ceiling fan as yet, there are a number of retailers with sales on ceiling fans at the moment.
If air-conditioning is the only option you have, try setting it between 23 and 26 deg Celsius. In those really high 30 something to 40 something degree days, this will still be very cool in comparison. Every degree lower than 23 deg Celsius will cost 10% more to use.
