Switch to a high-efficiency geothermal system or air-source heat pump and save 3 cents per kWh on your electric bill with our Efficient Electric Heat rate for qualified members.
Set your thermostat as low as is comfortable. The optimal setting is 68 degrees when you’re awake and lower when you’re sleeping or out. Using a programmable thermostat will allow you to automatically lower the temperature in your home when you’re gone during the day or at night.
Don’t choose a lower air conditioning temperature when you first turn it on. It won’t cool faster – whenever it’s running it’s cooling as fast as it can.
Seal air leaks around windows and door frames with caulk or weather stripping. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to save energy.
