As the days get longer and hotter, your air conditioner needs to run longer to keep you cool and can account for half or more of your bill.  www.FPL.com  "In hotter months, your A/C can run up to twice as long as it does in cooler months to keep your home at the same temperature. So when it's running longer, your bill will be higher," said FPL Energy Expert, Tiffany Spence.  To help customers make summer savings a breeze, FPL offers "Seven Summer Saving Tips":  1.Set your thermostat at 78 degrees when you're home, and 82 while you're     away.
