Efficiency Tips

Find out how the little changes add up! Invest in these simple, low-cost tips to boost your energy efficiency, lower your energy consumption and lower your monthly bills.

Seal cracks and gaps around your home.

Add weather stripping around leaky doors and caulk around window frames, vents and ductwork. You could save more than $200 annually by taking this simple step.

Change filters regularly.

Change furnace and air conditioner filters monthly. Dirty filters restrict air flow and reduce the overall efficiency of your heating and cooling system by making it work harder.

Change your lighting.

Replace your five most-used light bulbs with ENERGY STAY-qualified bulbs, and you could save $70 a year. 

How Weather Affects Your Usage

Electricity use increases whenever the outside temperatures hit extremes. You can expect that your electricity bills will be higher during the coldest part of the winter and during the heat of the summer.
