Air conditioning is a modern-day luxury that many of us can’t imagine living without. Unfortunately, according to energy.gov, air conditioners are responsible for 6% of all the electricity produced in the US, and costs homeowners around $29 billion annually. Needless to say, when an #OhmHour hits, turning your AC off is one of the biggest things you can do to lower your energy consumption.
