Understanding a High Electric Bill

Are you wondering why your electric usage went
up when you didn’t change your thermostat setting and now you have a
higher than normal bill? Here are a few things to keep in mind. If it’s really
cold or really hot outside, your heating and cooling equipment is going to have
to run a lot longer especially if your home is not well insulated. As a result
it will use more electricity. We generally recommend keeping your
thermostat at 68 degrees in winter and 78 in summer to balance comfort and
cost. That should keep your bills low when the outside temperature is moderate. as well as say fifty to sixty in the winter. or eighty to ninety in the summer but
the more extreme the temperatures the longer your HVAC equipment will have to
run to keep you comfortable and that make sure bill go up so pay attention to
the temperature it can help you better understand your usage before adjusting
your thermostat a sweater or slippers in the winter or turn on a fan in the
summer to help you feel comfortable without breaking the bank
