PSE&G Offers Money-Saving Hot Weather Tips
10 Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Save on Electric Bills
(Newark, N.J. – June 20, 2016) On the first official day of summer, Public Service Electric & Gas (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest utility, reminds customers that higher temperatures can also lead to more usage and higher electric bills. Customers can save energy and money this summer by following a few easy and inexpensive tips.
- Seal holes and cracks around doors and windows with insulation or weather-stripping.
- Don’t cool an empty house. Set your thermostat higher when you are away.
- Don’t cool unused rooms. Close the vents and shut the door.
- Ceiling fans cool fast and cost less than air conditioning.
- Operate appliances in the morning or evening when it is cooler outside.
- When washing dishes or clothes, run full loads.
- Wash laundry in cold water.
- Close blinds and draperies facing the sun to keep out the sun’s heat.
- Replace air filters monthly. Dirty filters make your air conditioner work harder.
- Use a microwave or crockpot instead of the oven. They won’t heat the house.
