Spring has officially arrived, and that means summer won’t be far behind. Temperatures in the area can soar into triple digits, accompanied by the kind of humidity that only New England can offer. Your air conditioning system is going to be called into action early and often, and that means your summer cooling bills are going to go way up. But just because they’re higher doesn’t mean they should be any higher than necessary.

Some of them you may already practice as a matter of course: setting the thermostat to 78 degrees on hot days, for instance, and wearing light clothes and hydrating during the heat of the day.
