Saving money on air conditioning, SmartAC program

This heat wave has a lot of us looking for ways to save on our electric bills. But one money-saving move that left a 95-year-old woman living with a thermostat in the nineties.

They called for repairs on her A/C unit, but found out the culprit was something shed allowed to be attached to it.

Hermine Reiring is the original owner of her Madera home, a 19650s model, and she likes it warm. But her granddaughter tells Action News — one time it got way too warm. Like right now its 79, but that day when the SmartAC kicked on it was about 100 degrees, said Kathy Reiring.
