All customers can stay safe and cool while managing their energy costs by using less energy. As temperatures rise outside, PECO offers these suggestions for keeping your home cool and your energy bill down:
  • Turn off unnecessary lights.
  • Close blinds, shades and drapes to reduce the amount of sunlight entering your home.
  • Use room fans, ceiling fans, and attic and whole-house fans to circulate air.
  • Avoid using home appliances like dishwashers and clothes dryers during peak daylight hours. These appliances generate heat and add humidity to homes. Use these appliances during the early morning or late evening when it is generally cooler.
  • Keep your thermostat set at a constant comfortable level.
