Why is my bill so high?
In summer, rising temperatures can cause rising power bills, but if you adjust your thermostat up by just a few degrees, you can save money. Set your thermostat at 78 degrees or higher and reduce your cooling costs by up to 3% for each degree of adjustment.

For winter, if you have drafty rooms, varying temperatures throughout your home, hot or cold ceilings or high heating and cooling bills, you may need to insulate your attic. Set your thermostat at 68 degrees or lower and reduce your heating costs by up to 3% for each degree of adjustment.
