Tips to Reduce Energy Usage During Winter

Posted by

Did you know that heating and cooling account for about 56% of your home energy use? So, in the midst of winter when you need to keep your home warm, you’ll need to get creative with how you can keep your energy bill as low as possible.

To give you some energy efficiency ideas, we’ve compiled a list of easy-to-implement tips to help keep your energy cost down!

Energy Efficiency Tips

1)  Be sure to read your thermostat’s manufacturer manual. Installing it near direct sunlight, drafts, doorways, skylights and windows can cause “ghost readings” or unnecessary furnace or AC cycling.

2)  Unplug appliances in each room when you leave, such as your cell phone charger and your stereo. Even though they aren’t on or you aren’t using them, they are still sucking up energy!

3)  Make sure there is no cold air coming in through your closed windows. If there is, try to fix it. Not only will you be warmer, but you can save money by not letting the heat escape.

4)  Open shades in the winter and close shades in the summer and turn off the lights during the daytime.

5)  Turn off lights and the TV when you leave a room.

6)  When doing the dishes, wash all the dishes first, then rinse.

7)  Look to buy Energy Star® rated products. They are known to use less energy, Click HERE for a complete list of its offerings.

8)  For an in-depth guide into saving energy at home, reference the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Savers Guide.

I also enjoy making important decisions regarding customer issues. I pride myself in being able to look at all the facts surrounding a particular customer issue and making a fair and final decision.

Giving Back for the Holidays: Help Us Provide Additional Aid to Hurricane Sandy Victims

Posted by

Community responsibility has been ingrained in our company DNA for nearly 200 years, and with one click you can join us in supporting our giving efforts.

Each year, thousands of Constellation employees donate their time to “give back” to the communities we serve. During this holiday season, Constellation employees participated in numerous community service programs around the country. One program included donating hundreds of “angels” to The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, which helps aid disadvantaged families during the holiday season.

Yet, Constellation isn’t just made up of the employees that operate the company; it’s fueled by our customers and people that help support us. In staying true to the spirit of holiday giving, we’re asking you to help us give even more and assist us in providing aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy. You can help now by simply clicking the “like” button on the embedded link below! For every “like” we gain on our Facebook page during the month of December, we’ll donate an additional $1 to The Salvation Army’s Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Effort, up to $10,000.

We hope you join our giving efforts and have a wonderful holiday!
