Money Saving Tips and More....

With the South Florida Spring season comes higher electric bills mainly to crank up the a/c and stay cool!  It's that time of the year again, and here is a reminder from last year's blog on how to save energy from FPL:

  1. Cool your home at 78 degrees with the thermostat fan on AUTO.  For extra savings, set your thermostat to 82 degrees when you are away from home.
  2. Replace or clean your A/C filter on a regular schedule, such as the first of every month to reduce cooling costs.
  3. Turn off your ceiling fan when you leave the room.  Each fan running all the time is costing you more than $7 per month!
  4. Lower your water heater temperature to 120 degrees as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy.  This should save you about $2 per month.

If you are new to this area of the country, believe me, all of these tips can add up to savings.  Try these tips from FPL, all you have to lose is some of that really high electric bill!

More money saving tips to come, have a great weekend and stay cool!
