As temperatures rise in the Central Valley and PG&E peak charges surge, it’s time to brush up on eco-friendly tips that will save you money and help the environment this season. Sol-Tek Solar is committed to providing you with sustainable, long-term clean energy solutions. Here are several ways you can save this summer: 

1. Clean Air Filters for Fresher Air and Lower Bills

Allergy season is upon us, and your air filters play a crucial role in keeping your home comfortable. Did you know that clean air filters not only reduce sniffles but also enhance the efficiency of your HVAC system? Regularly replacing or cleaning your air filters can lead to significant energy and cost savings. A breath of fresh air for your wallet!

2. Cool Laundry, Cooler Savings

As temperatures rise, so does your laundry bill. Opt for cold water when washing clothes because it preserves fabrics and saves energy. Additionally, consider embracing nature’s magic by hang-drying your clothes instead of using the dryer. 

If you want to take it a step further after air-drying, tumble dry your clothes on a cool setting for 15 minutes or less to remove any lingering stiffness. Your wallet and the planet will thank you for this eco-friendly choice.

3. Unplug and Rest: Electronics Edition

Electronics can still drain power—even while they’re sleeping! Don’t let them silently inflate your energy bills. Unplug TVs, chargers, and gadgets when they’re not being used. It’s a small step that adds up to big savings. Give your electronics a rest, and keep your wallet energized.

4. Bright Ideas: Swap Incandescent Bulbs for LEDs

Light up your home while dimming your energy bill. Swap out incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs. LED light bulbs last longer and use less electricity. Your house will shine brighter, and your wallet will feel lighter. It’s a win-win for your home and the environment!
