Coleridge almost had it right: Summer has set in with unusual severity and our wallets are certain to feel the heat. If you need ideas that will help you lower next month’s bill, take a look at the United States Department of Energy website for strategies on reducing your cooling costs. The USDE website has all kinds of low-cost or no-cost energy saving tips.
