The company offers energy supply plans, as well as tips to help customers cut down on heating and cooling costs.
In order to keep heating costs down in the winter, the company advises customers to Change HVAC filters regularly and get their home furnace serviced by a professional to achieve the best efficiency; Seal any air leaks in the home by installing weather stripping where needed, inspecting insulation in attics and crawlspaces and putting caulk around windows and covering them to trap heat in; Check the roof for any damaged shingles, clean the gutters out, and mow leaves to use as mulch for the yard.
The company also encourages customers to turn off exterior faucets and drain the sprinkler system to avoid a burst pipe and to reverse their ceiling fans, which may seem unusual, but having the blades spin in the opposite direction will force rising warm air downward.
