3 Ways to Save Energy in a Hot Nashville Summer

nashville tennessee

Nashville is a scenic country wonderland, especially during the summer. But boy, can it get hot! One of the first things most people want to do in the summertime is to escape the heat and crank up the a/c, but that can waste a lot of energy. There's got to be a way to enjoy the summer days and nights here in Nashville and still conserve energy while being comfortable. We figure out the top 3 ways to save energy this summer while still enjoying all that your backyard of Tennessee has to offer. 

  1. Close the curtain on the sun! When the sun is peeking outside your window, closing the curtains or shutting the blinds can block out a lot of unwanted heat from entering your home. This also has a reverse advantage in the winter by opening the window during the sun's peak hours to let in the warmth and then closing them to keep the heat inside. 
  2. Upgrade your thermostat! Get a programmable thermostat (preferably one with an Energy Star rating) that regulates the temperature in your home and doesn't use excessive amounts of energy. It works all day and night; whether you're home, asleep, or away for a couple of days. It's even possible to get a smart thermostat that does all this as well as lets you control it from a remote location. 
  3. Shut off the lights! Take advantage of a summer breeze and natural light and shut off your interior lighting while opening windows and, if possible, a door opening to outside. Let your home soak up natural lightning, making artificial light unnecessary and saves you little bits of energy here and there. 

Get the most out of your summer in Nashville and enjoy what nature has to offer. Open a window, pour a glass of sweet tea, put on some music, and take in that warm summer breeze all while saving on your energy bill and saving the earth a little at a time.

See What Customers Have to Say About Victory Lights

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Lee N., Managing Partner, New Boy Properties

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

Marc M., Chief Building Engineer, Healthcare Trust of America

I have worked with Chad and his team for many years. His team always provide concise product information, allowing us to make informative decisions and our best options. The friendliness of the staff runs from the delivery person through the sales staff to Chad.  I have never felt pressure from the staff and they make you feel comfortable and confident with everything they provide.

William Y., Facilities Maintenance Manager, Kane Realty Corp. / Midtown Property Services

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.

Wilson F., Treasurer, Holy Cross Lutheran Church

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.
