Keeping Cool Without Going Broke

Keeping cool can burn a hole in your wallet, but it doesn't have to. Alyssa Fenske reports on how to keep cool without going broke.





  • As the temperatures outside are going up, it may be tempting to lower the temperature on your AC.

  • But if you want to save, leave it alone.

  • "When temps spike into the 90s, air conditioners have trouble if it's too low."

  • A programmable thermostat will save you the most in the long run - keeping the AC at a higher temperature when you're out of the house.

  • If you have an extra bedroom, or any rooms that you aren't using, close the vents and keep the doors shut. That will help push the cool air into the rooms that you do use. Get more tips from our report on FOX 47 News by clicking on the image above.
