There are opportunities all throughout your home to help you save money by using less energy. We could all use a few extra dollars these days. That’s why we developed a virtual, online experience to help you find those hidden savings.
Here are a few easy tips that you’ll discover when you start your virtual energy saving journey at SaveWithPPL.com.
Switch. Then flip the switch.
It sounds simple, but if you haven’t made the switch to LED lightbulbs, you’re leaving money on the table. LEDs may look more expensive at the cash register, but they pay off. They have the same brightness as traditional bulbs, but they use 90% less energy and can save you up to $75 a year in electricity. Plus, they last 35 times longer than traditional bulbs.
Get a thermostat with a higher IQ
When the temperature outside fluctuates, it’s easy to forget to change your inside thermostat – or to know what temperature to change it to. A smart thermostat can help.
These devices automatically adjust based on your behavior, your preferences, and the current temperature. And you can change your temperature from anywhere using a mobile app. Install a smart thermostat and you could save up to $50 a year in energy.
We even offer rebates up to $100 to get you started.
You may be leaking money.
Keep warm air from escaping your home this winter by installing weatherstripping. Even the smallest gaps can lead to big leaks. You could save up to 15% on your energy bill when you weatherstrip your leaky doors and windows. Check out tips on how to track down air leaks on our blog at pplelectric.com/airleaks.
Save now. Save later.
If the refrigerator in your kitchen — or even the one in your garage — was made before 1993, we’ve got bad news and good news.
The bad news? You’re probably using twice the energy you need. The good news? We’ll pay you $50 for that energy monster and haul it away for free so you can upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator.
