Here are a couple of other reminders that can help save on your electric bills this winter:
- Make sure your thermostat is not set on "emergency heat". This setting forces your heat pump to work harder and use more electricity, which will result in an increase on your electric bill.
- Don't use space heaters unless absolutely necessary. These type heaters use much more electricity to heat a space and can add significantly to the cost of your electric bill.
By adopting these energy conservation practices during periods of extreme cold, you can save money on your electric bills.
