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.

  1. Seal holes and cracks around doors and windows with insulation or weather-stripping.
  2. Don’t cool an empty house. Set your thermostat higher when you are away.
  3. Don’t cool unused rooms. Close the vents and shut the door.
  4. Ceiling fans cool fast and cost less than air conditioning.
  5. Operate appliances in the morning or evening when it is cooler outside.
  6. When washing dishes or clothes, run full loads.
  7. Wash laundry in cold water.
  8. Close blinds and draperies facing the sun to keep out the sun’s heat.
  9. Replace air filters monthly. Dirty filters make your air conditioner work harder.
  10. Use a microwave or crockpot instead of the oven. They won’t heat the house.
