Utility Savings Tips for Winter Months
The rapidly changing weather conditions this winter can easily mean higher than expected utility bills. CU reminds its customers that there are several ways to help conserve energy and water to reduce utility bills.
- Save 3-5% of your heating costs for each degree you set below your normal setting. The suggested temperature for winter months is 68 degrees.
- Consider installing a programmable or smart thermostat.
- Check your home for air leaks around doors and windows.
- Make sure the heating system is working properly and the filters are clean.
- Check the insulation levels in your attic, exterior and basement walls, floors, and crawl spaces to see if it meets recommended levels. CU is currently offering an additional rebate through March, 31 to assist with adding insulation.
Customers with established accounts may qualify for Level Pay billing. Level Pay lets you pay an expected amount each month.
