End of Summer Vacation. Get the house ready!

Hope you can get one last vacation in this summer before school starts!  Be sure to get the house ready for vacation, too.  Change thermostat setting before you leave. Turn up the temp on the air conditioner or turn it off entirely.  Unplug appliances and electronics not in use to prevent phantom power usage.  Many items go into a standby mode and use electricity even when they are turned off.  Adjust the water heater temp to the lowest setting.  Some units have a vacation setting.  Put a couple lights on timers in various locations in the house at different times to deter burglars.  Keep most of the drapes closed to keep out the hot sun and keep would be thieves from looking in.  Then get going and have a great late summer vacation!
