Changes in weather have a direct impact on how much you pay for heating and cooling. Anyone who had a parent shout at them to shut the door on a cold day because “we’re not paying to heat the neighborhood” can attest to that.
If your business has large spaces to heat and cool, your air conditioning or heating system has to work harder for longer periods of time. Even worse, when the weather fluctuates from hot to cold your HVAC has to cycle on and off and between heating and cooling to maintain a comfortable average temperature. This is both inefficient and costly.
So how do weather changes impact your utility bills? While you can’t directly control the rates on your electricity bill, there are things you can do to lower your energy bills even during the most extreme weather.
- Audit your energy usage to lower your electrical demand. And this goes beyond heating and cooling. Energeia Consulting is an industry leader in LED lighting conversion. LED lighting is a proven cost reducer for homes and for businesses and they are more durable which means they can stand up to extreme weather. Energy efficiency is perhaps the best defense against wild swings in weather.
- Consider switching electricity or natural gas suppliers. Depending on where you live, you have a choice of who supplies your electricity and Energeia Consulting can help you find the lowest rate.
- Even if your electricity supplier offers the lowest rate, that doesn’t mean they are billing you correctly. An energy bill audit from Energeia Consulting can uncover incorrect billing and not only correct your rate so you are being charged less for future bills, we can even get you a refund for every dime that was overcharged
Just because it’s over 100 degrees doesn’t mean you have to cringe and change the thermostat whenever the door is open. It’s easy to make a few investments in your home or building to help you save energy during extreme hot or cold weather. Energeia Consultants are experts in saving our customers money by helping them improve their buildings, audit their billing, and cut their energy bills to a fraction of what they once were.
