Now that we are officially in the summer months, forecasters are predicting dangerous heat from the Midwest to the deep south including Florida.
Heat advisories are in effect from Florida to the Great Lakes.
In some cases temperatures will be in the triple digits which means Florida residents will be using their air conditioner even more than usual.
Coupled with the rising costs of everyday essentials, Floridians try to find ways to stay cool without breaking the bank.
Florida Power & Light Company shares easy no-cost and low-cost strategies to help save energy and money all summer long.

1. Every degree you raise your thermostat can help save 3-5% on monthly cooling costs
2. Leave interior doors open to help circulate cooled air efficiently
3. Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. So don’t forget to turn off the fan when you leave the room.

FPL also offers an Energy Manager tool to make it easy for customers to see when, where and how much of your home’s energy is being used. This shows customers exactly where they can save.
