Here are some energy saving tips:

  • Keep doors and windows closed while using air-conditioning and in the winter to keep the heat indoors.
  • Turn off kitchen, bath, and ventilating fans as soon as they've done the job.
  • Insulation keeps your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Seal your ducts.

Demand Controllers
With increasing electric costs local electric companies are offering specials on Demand Controllers.  What are Demand Controllers? It works like this:

The demand controller monitors your overall electricity usage, including peak-time usage.  It makes sure you don't go over a preset peak level.  In return, you qualify for a lower demand service rate.  The bottom line is you could save 20 percent or more on your electric bill.  Because you control your demand limit, how much you save is up to you.

Benefits Include:

Can control the electricity demand, which can reduce your electric costs.
Controls appliances on a 15-minute cycle, thus not shutting off major appliances for long time periods.
No need to manually control your major appliances to prevent high demand.
Does not control your lights, T.V. range, and other appliances.Contact your local energy provider for rebates and offers available in your area.
