Energy Tip

Periodically inspect your dryer vent to ensure it is not blocked. This will save energy and may prevent a fire. Manufacturers recommend using rigid venting material – not plastic vents that may collapse and cause blockages. Source:

Safety Tip

Bulb wattage matters! Light bulbs with wattages that are too high for the light fixture can overheat the fixture, causing a fire hazard. (ESFI)

keep colder weather from increasing your bill

It didn’t take long for summer’s heat to give way to brisk mornings this year. Frigid temperatures can cause heating systems to work over time, and since heating and cooling can make up nearly half of your electric bill, you may experience sticker shock when you open that bill. Instead of waiting until after a potentially high bill is in your mailbox, be proactive. There are things you can do now to help ensure you are managing your energy use and spending less.
These simple steps can help you manage your use:
*Wrap exposed pipes and water heaters that are in unconditioned spaces.
Change your air filter once a month.
*Keep drapes closed at night and keep those that don’t get direct sunlight closed during the day
*Keep the fireplace damper closed when it is not in use. Keeping it open can bring cold air into the room.
*Caulk around the fireplace hearth, and caulk or weather strip around doors and windows.
*Log on to your Northeast Oklahoma Electric account to keep up with your use. If we’ve had a few days of frigid temperatures, see how you can try to save on days that are milder.
*Dress for the weather, even if you are inside. Wearing proper clothing like long sleeves and pants, or wrapping up in a cozy blanket will help combat the temptation of bumping up the thermostat.
