Top Energy Saving Tips for Winter: Atlantic City Electric's Expert Advice
Winter has arrived, bringing colder temperatures and potentially higher energy bills. Atlantic City Electric is dedicated to assisting customers in reducing their energy usage and keeping bills manageable during the cold season. The company encourages customers to utilize energy efficiency information to minimize costs and take advantage of available energy assistance programs across New Jersey.
Recognizing the tendency for increased energy consumption during colder weather, especially with hybrid work schedules, Atlantic City Electric offers the following tips to help customers save energy and money:
Adjust your thermostat: Lowering it a few degrees can save on heating costs. Investing in a smart thermostat can help monitor energy usage efficiently.
Unplug devices: Electronic devices continue to draw energy even when fully charged, so unplugging them when not in use can save energy.
Manage blinds: Keep blinds open during the day to utilize solar heating and close them at night to retain warmth.
Use energy-efficient light bulbs: LED bulbs consume significantly less energy than standard ones.
Seal air leaks: Caulk or weather-strip windows and doors to prevent heat loss and install storm windows. Also, close chimney flues when not in use.
Insulate your home: Proper insulation helps trap heat inside.
Adjust hot water heater: Lowering the temperature can save both energy and money.
Maintain heating equipment: Regular servicing by professionals ensures efficiency.
Choose ENERGY STAR® products: These meet stringent energy efficiency standards set by relevant authorities.
Customers can also monitor and manage their energy usage through Atlantic City Electric's online tool, My Account.
