PPL has some energy and money saving tips. Those include making sure drapes and shades are pulled down to block the hot sun, and setting your thermostat between 72 and 78 degrees. PPL also says minimize the use of heat-generating appliances like dishwashers, stoves, and washers and dryers. Incandescent light bulbs also produce heat, so switch to more efficient LED bulbs. PPL says ceiling fans are also economical, but use them only in occupied rooms.
