Why It's Good To Crank Down The Heat During Extreme Cold

Posted: Updated:

DELMARVA - Local power companies are asking that you turn down the heat a few notches and avoid using appliances like the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

It helps to ensure that there's an adequate electric supply during extremely cold weather. If there's too much stress on the system, it can cause a lot of problems, like fuses melting because of overexertion.

So if you can, try not to use too much energy during those peak hours which run from 6-8 p.m. and 6-8 a.m.
