My weekends are filled with relaxing time at home and household chores. We recover from the work week and get ready for the next week. In order to keep our house cooler, we try to keep the lights off, the ceiling fans on and the shutters closed. This helps save us money by reducing our energy and air conditioning use. Another great way for Texans to save money on your home’s energy consumption during the weekend is to sign-up for Direct Energy’s Free Power Weekends
. You will get free energy usage from 6pm on Friday to midnight on Sunday* – isn’t that amazing! It’s the energy plan with the most FREE weekend hours in Texas*!
Every weekend my kids vacuum the entire house in order to earn chore credits. I got a new cordless vacuum that is really powerful. Of course our german shepherd still likes to attack it!
Since my husband usually takes both breakfast and lunch to work, I cook ahead for the upcoming work week. I like to make Quinoa Casserole which involves cooking the quinoa in my electric pressure cooker and then baking the casserole in my oven. I don’t like using my oven during the summer because it heats up the house, but if I want to cook ahead for the work week then I must use my oven.
One way that Direct Energy helps you understand which appliances have the largest impact on your monthly energy bill is by providing Direct Your Energy
, a custom usage insights product. You’ll receive a Weekly Usage Summary email which will help you make adjustments to your energy usage to manage your costs.
The weekends are the best time to do the laundry! I usually do six loads of laundry every weekend and I’ve trained my kids to both fold the clean laundry and put it away. Remember to checkout Direct Energy’s Free Power Weekends
to help you
save money all weekend long!
