Fall into Energy Savings

Fall is here, so are falling temperatures!  Your heating system accounts for over 70% of your usage for an electrically heated home.  Here are a few quick energy saving tips to reduce your usage as the days get colder and shorter.
  • Set your thermostat to 68°F or lower.
  • Keep curtains open on the south side of the house and closed on the north side during the day to trap the warm sunlight.
  • Make sure the fireplace damper is closed when not in use.
  • Keep your feet warm by placing area rugs over hardwood floors.
  • Close crawl space vents.

Apply the tips above and email us at energyservices@cdelightband.com or call 931-553-7400 for any energy-saving questions you may have. If you are concerned that your daily usage is trending higher than normal, don’t wait to receive the bill. Call us for past and present real-time meter readings. We can email the report to you and monitor if needed once you’ve made changes.
