How To "Beat The Peak" And Save Energy

Posted: Updated:
DELMARVA - With Choptank Electric issuing a "beat the peak" alert Wednesday, and summer weather approaching pretty quickly, we've got a few tips to help you save money this summer.

Remember, during hot weather, a central air conditioner can account for 30 percent of your electric bill.  So, check the air filter regularly to make sure your unit is working as efficiently as possible.  Also, set your thermostat at 78 degrees, and it's important not to have heat sources like lamps and televisions close to the air conditioner thermostat.  The heat may cause the air conditioner unit to run longer than it should.
