I’ll admit, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with summer. I love the lazy mornings, carefree hours spent at the pool and endless summer activities available living in a city like Houston. But the heat. THE HEAT. I mean, can we all agree that the scorching temperatures we have to endure while at the same time entertaining children all day is a bit ridiculous? And then, walking to the mailbox {in the heat} to find a sky-high electric bill from running the A/C nonstop just adds insult to injury. But recently, a friend told me about Gexa Energy, a leading provider of affordable energy services in Texas, and a new plan they are offering that is too good to pass up:: Free 3 Day Weekends! 

Free Electricity and a Stress Free Summer

You read that right. On Gexa’s plan, you won’t pay a dime for electricity on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays- all year long. According to The United States Department of Energy, air conditioners use about 6% of all the electricity produced in the U.S. each year, at an estimated annual cost of $29 billion for homeowners. For my family, Gexa’s Free 3 Day Weekends Plan takes so much stress off our plate, especially in the summer. We often have family and friends over on the weekends for barbecues. There are a lot of people in our house, including a gaggle of kids who are constantly in and out, in and out {and who never remember to close the door}. We end up having to knock the thermostat down a few degrees to make everyone comfortable.

We would never give up entertaining and gathering with our people, but our summer electric bill is a strain on the budget. To know that no matter how much and how low we run the A/C on the weekends won’t affect our electric bill at all makes me want to party every weekend! Why not? And if carefree, A/C cranking weekends aren’t your thing, Gexa also offers another great plan:: Free Mornings and Nights! My husband is one who would be comfortable sleeping outside in a blizzard, so this plan is really tempting for him.

Other Ways to Save Money on Electricity

Gexa’s plans offering free electricity are a great start in lowering our monthly electric bill, but I was pleased to learn there are other ways to cut back on our electricity use. Gexa’s website offers a ton of tips and tricks for helping me save more and stress less. Some of these things I never would have known- like making sure my bathroom and laundry room fans are vented to the outside, not just the attic, and unplugging energy “vampires”- things like computers and DVRs that draw power even when they aren’t officially “on”. 

Exclusive Offer for HMB Readers
