Some other tips:
• Use fans instead of air conditioning (or keep your air conditioning set around 76 in the summer and use fans to circulate the air).
• Use space heaters in the winter (or keep your heat set around 68)
• Purchase energy star appliances
• If applicable look into Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
• Simply call your power company and ask for tips, payment plans, flat fee rates, offers, or inspections.
