Summer Heat: Tips to Save Yourself from High Energy Bills as Weather Heats Up

Summer Heat: Tips to Save Yourself from High Energy Bills as Weather Heats Up

Summer's just around the corner. Here are a few ways you can keep your cool without breaking the bank.

Set your cooling thermostat as high as comfort permits. The higher the setting, the more energy you'll save.

Don't put appliances that generate heat, like lamps and TV sets, under your wall-mounted cooling thermostat. The heat rising from these appliances can cause the thermostat to read a temperature that's higher than the actual room and lead to overcooling the whole house.

Add weather stripping and caulking around all doors and windows, including attic entryways, to reduce air leaks. You can also add caulking around baseboards, where walls meet walls, ceiling or floor, and around exterior faucets.

With evaporative (swamp) cooling, crack open windows in rooms where you want cool air to flow and close off areas of the house not in use.

Draw blinds, shades or drapes to block the sun during the hottest part of the day.

Preparing for Wildfire Season: Tips from PNM

Preparing for Wildfire Season: Tips from PNM

As wildfire season approaches in New Mexico, we want to make sure you are prepared to protect yourselves and your homes from the threat of potential wildfires. Here are some important tips from PNM to help you stay safe and prevent wildfires:

  • Create Defensible Space: Clear vegetation and debris at least 30 feet around your home to create a buffer zone that can help prevent the spread of wildfire.
  • Maintain Your Property: Regularly maintain your property by clearing dead vegetation, leaves, and other flammable materials from your roof, gutters, and yard.
  • Prepare an Emergency Kit: Assemble an emergency kit with essentials such as water, non-perishable food, flashlights, batteries, a first-aid kit, and important documents. Make sure it's easily accessible in case of evacuation.
  • Stay Informed: Sign up for emergency alerts and stay informed about wildfire conditions in your area. Follow evacuation orders promptly and have a plan in place for where to go and how to communicate with loved ones.
  • Have an Evacuation Plan: Plan evacuation routes and practice them with your family. Designate a meeting point outside the evacuation area.
  • Protect Your Home: Use fire-resistant materials for roofing and siding and install spark arrestors on chimneys. Consider installing fire-resistant shutters or screens on windows.
  • Be Cautious with Power Equipment: Avoid using power equipment on windy days and ensure that vehicles and machinery are properly maintained to prevent sparks that could ignite wildfires.
