How the Weather can save you some $

After three straight summers of scorching hot weather, average summer temperatures around the country are expected to be close to normal this year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). That is good news for homeowners because it means less energy consumption for air conditioning and therefore lower energy bills. According to the EIA, the average U.S. household will pay about $395 for electricity between June and August this year, or about 2.5 percent less than last year.

This marks the third year in a row that consumers will spend less on energy during summer than in previous years. However, this time, the lower costs are likely going to result from lower energy consumption rather than price cuts. The EIA expects that most homeowners will be able to switch off their air conditioners for longer periods of time this year and save money in the process because of the cooler weather compared to the last two years. The agency is urging homeowners to take advantage of the weather by spending more time outdoors and engaging in activities such as grilling and gardening.
