Save On Your Power Bill This Summer with Solar

Summer in Florida can make you feel like a snowcone in…well, Florida. With kids home from school and more people working from their home office, it’s no wonder that electricity costs skyrocket during those sweltering summer months. If you’re looking for a way to beat the heat with your solar system, Solar Bear has five ways to save this summer.

1. Tis the grilling season

Summer is always a great time for grilling, but did you know that it can save you 2-5% in cooling costs? Ovens can increase your home’s temperature by almost 10 degrees which can send your air conditioner into overdrive. So, bring on the burgers!

2. Save your energy

Large appliances like washers, dryers, dishwashers and more are the biggest energy consumers in your home. If you’re ready to update those appliances, look for models with the Energy Star label. Energy Star products generally consume 10-40% less than other models. This can make a big difference with your electric bill savings!

3. Battery up

Using a solar battery can offset peak electric rates. If your solar system includes battery storage, make the most of your surplus energy by utilizing it during higher use rates. By storing excess renewable energy, you have the freedom to use it whenever you need it.

4. No filter

When was the last time you cleaned your AC filter? Because filters collect dust, mold and grime, it’s important to regularly check and clean the air filter in your AC unit. Dirty filters require more energy to run, which can lead to a higher electricity bill.

5. Shine bright

Make sure your solar system is the best it can be! Solar Bear’s team of solar experts can audit your system and recommend energy-saving solutions, just in time for the summer heatwave. Take advantage of the summer sun’s strong rays and longer days with amazing solar savings!
