Are you Aware of your Energy Costs?

 

 

In today’s tighter times we are all looking for ways to keep more money in our pockets and keep less from needlessly flying out the window.

Did you know that in the winter it is 2 to 3 times more expensive to heat your home than to cool it in the summer?  So, there’s no need to run the heat at full blast while you are away at work. Use your programmable thermostat and adjust your heat so that it is not running all day.

Studies have proven that people typically take longer warm showers in the winter rather than the summer.

Did you know that some types of electronics pull power even when they are not turned on?

-Devices such as televisions.  Large plasma TVs use more electicity and produce more heat than regular TV’s

-Stereos

-DVD and DVR players

-Cell phones and battery chargers

House guests can help run your electirc bill up – more laundry, showers, cooking, doing dishes, watching TV, lights on and computer usage.

Often times the length of your billing cycle can make your bill go up. you may have 2-3 more days in the cycle compared to last month’s bill,  That can cause a variation in your bill.

So, this Winter be sure to keep your eyes open, so you can needlessly keep money from flying out the window.
