RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- As the heat wave bears down on locals, energy bills will undoubtedly be on the rise, but there are some things you can do to help ease the cost of cooling off.

NV Energy says we don't see extreme temperatures like southern Nevada, so brown outs are not an issue here, but are some simple things you can do to make sure you don't break the bank. You can set your water heater at 120 degrees and cook outside and not on your stovetop. Also, NV Energy advises to set your thermostat to 78 degrees and raise the temperature by 10 degrees at night. If you are firing up the air conditioner for the first time, make sure there is no debris around the unit.

Lastly, if you do have an outage, call 775-834-4444.
