The Hudson Valley is experiencing some sweltering temperatures, which may leave people wanting to keep the air conditioner on - but Con Edison has tips on how to keep cool and not break the bank.
"A good common sense tip is to set your thermostat on the highest safe, comfortable temperature. Use energy to be safe and comfortable, you don't want to use more than that. Close off rooms not in use. If you're in the living room with the AC, close off the bedrooms and bathrooms," says Con Edison spokesperson Allan Drury.
Drury says the utility prepares for long, hot summers months ahead of time.
