As Summer Approaches, Dominion Virginia Power Offers Programs And Tips To Help Residential Customers Save Money

Stocks in this article: D

RICHMOND, Va., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Virginia Power is offering customers multiple ways to save money on their energy bills this summer. Programs with financial incentives offer customers ways to complete home-energy audits, upgrade mechanical equipment and tune up their heating and cooling units. Low and no-cost tips help save energy and lower bills.  

"Making minor adjustments at home can result in big savings on your energy bill," said Gianna Clark, vice president of Customer Service. "Dominion offers rebates that can cover the cost of having a contractor evaluate your home's energy efficiency."

Home Energy Check Up Program

When customers complete a home energy check up, they receive a personalized report showing the potential cost savings they could earn by implementing energy-saving measures. Participating contractors collect home energy consumption data to recommend and install energy-saving improvements including:

  • compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • efficient faucet aerators and showerheads
  • replacement air filters for air conditioners
  • door weather-stripping
  • smart outlet strips

The program reimburses customers up to $250 in qualified energy-saving improvements. For more information on the Home Energy Check Up, visit: dom.com; keyword " conservation" or call 1-866-DOM-HELP.

"They actually repaired some things that will save me money," said Alan Lipford, a Dominion Virginia Power customer from the Richmond area. Lipford recently took advantage of the Home Energy Check Up. "There is no downside. It's a win-win situation."

Start Saving Today You can save a lot with easy, do-it-yourself projects. The number one way to conserve energy is to set the thermostat to 78 degrees or higher during the summer months. A savings of up to 3 percent on cooling costs can be achieved for each degree the thermostat is increased.

"We recognize home heating and cooling systems can use a large amount of energy," said Clark. "Routine inspections can help those systems operate efficiently."
