If you want to lower APS electric bill, there are a lot of things to keep in mind. For most people, cold weather means high utility bills but it does not have to be that way. Here are some tips to help you lower your energy bills.
Cover and repair your windows
Your windows can be a huge source of lost heat from the inside of your property, especially those that aren’t insulated for cold weather. You should ensure that all windows are properly sealed to prevent cold air from entering your home and heat from escaping.
Check and replace the filters of your HAVC system regularly
If you have dirty filters then you should know that they will trap lint, dust, pollen and other contaminants that can reduce airflow and make your HVAC system work harder and take longer to heat your home. This can drive up costs. If you want to lower your energy bills, you should check your filters every month. If it is dirty, replace it with a new one. Your filters should be replaced once every three months.
Make upgrades around your home
If you have older appliances that use a lot of electricity then you should replace them with energy-efficient appliances.
Adjust or program your thermostat
You should ensure you heat your home only when there is someone at home. Programmable thermostats will allow you to monitor your heat usage so that you can have peace of mind. You should consider upgrading your system and adjusting your thermostat manually when going out.
Utilize your ceiling fan
You can utilize your ceiling fan to lower APS electric bill. While ceiling fans are thought to be summer tools to combat the heat, you can use them during the winter to circulate warm air below the fan. All you have to do is to reverse the motor in the fan to rotate clockwise at a lower speed.
