Begin Saving Money on Your Energy Bills Now

You could begin saving money on your energy bill by following a few simple suggestions:

  • Set your thermostat on 68-70 degrees during the winter and 78-80 degrees during the summer.
  • Check and change your furnace filter every one to three months.
    Keep obstructions away from the hot and cold air registers.
  • Turn the temperature on your water heater to the lowest setting that still gives you hot water.
  • Use the cold water cycle on the clothes washer when possible.
  • Use cold water for cooking. Heating water on the stove consumes less energy than using hot water from your water heater.
  • Install a water-saving, low flow showerhead.
  • Turn off lights when they are not in use. If you have children, teach them to turn off lights and conserve energy.
  • Clean the dust off the condenser coils at the back or bottom of the refrigerator once a year. Dirty coils make the refrigerator work harder and use more electricity.

These simple suggestions could help keep money in your pocket!
