As the weather heats up, lowering your energy bill can be as simple as making a few small changes around your home. Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) offers top tips to help customers save energy and money like an expert – and beat the heat this summer.
“Today, there are more tools than ever that customers can use to understand their energy usage and make changes that can help lower their bills,” said FPL Energy Expert Tiffany Spence-Cox. “While some customers who rent apartments or condos may not be able to invest in permanent energy-efficiency improvements, we want them to know there are simple, easy things they can do to save energy and money.”
“You already have control over the top driver of your energy bill – and that’s how you use your A/C. Because it’s hotter in the summer, your A/C runs longer to keep you cool. We recommend cooling your home to 78 degrees, but understand that’s not for everyone. Keep in mind that small changes add up: each degree you raise your thermostat can save you five percent on your monthly cooling costs.”
