Energy Saving Tips

In this economy everyone is scaling back...especially when it comes to their electricity bill.
There are a few simple things you can do starting today that will help your energy costs drop.

Whether it's adjusting your thermostat, unplugging your electronics, or simply turning off the lights.

"In the winter time keep the thermostat set at 68 degrees and in the summer time keep it 78, televisions, when there off they are really not off. These LCD’s and plasmas they are using energy even when they are not plugged in. Turning off lights when you leave home, anything you can do to conserve," says Brad Kidro.

Conserving energy can help you keep your cost low.
At wiregrass electrics they have this special camera that can pick up leaks in your walls or ceiling.

"We have an infra red camera where we can show where there are some energy leaks," said Kidro.

"It stays up, which is showing that air leaks through that fiberglass," said Jessie Ingrid.

According to Kimbro your energy bill will see peeks and valleys but you can always do more to keep your cost low.
Wiregrass electrics say it is key for home owners to have a seasonal inspection of their home and then make the proper adjustments to save on their bill.
