FPL Helps Customers Save On Their Energy Bills with Seven Summer Tips

JUNO BEACH, Fla. (August 5, 2014) -- Summer is synonymous with higher temperatures, and that may also mean higher than normal energy bills. As the days get longer and hotter, your air conditioner needs to run longer to keep you cool and can account for half or more of your bill.
"In hotter months, your A/C can run up to twice as long as it does in cooler months to keep your home at the same temperature. So when it's running longer, your bill will be higher," said FPL Energy Expert, Tiffany Spence.
To help customers make summer savings a breeze, FPL offers "Seven Summer Saving Tips":
1. Set your thermostat at 78 degrees when you're home, and 82 while you're away. Make sure the fan switch is on "auto"
2. Use fans to keep cool but remember to turn them off when leaving the room
3. Close blinds and shades to keep heat out
4. Seal windows and doors with weather stripping to avoid air escapes and save even more
5. Grill outside instead of using the oven or stove to help keep your kitchen cool
6. Clean or replace your air filter regularly so your air conditioner runs efficiently
7. Just click to take FPL's free Online Home Energy Survey at http://www.fpl.com/easytosave
The Online Home Energy Survey makes it easier than ever to fast-forward to savings. It provides customers with a personalized energy-savings plan, tips and recommendations to save up to $250 a year in energy costs. In addition, the survey is integrated with each home's Energy Dashboard so customers can see just how much they are spending on cooling, heating and appliances. The survey's report is updated automatically every month with customers' hourly, daily and monthly energy usage, monthly bill amount and temperature fluctuations, so tracking where their energy dollars are being spent is a breeze.
"FPL customers have the lowest bill in the state and we're always looking for ways to help them make it even lower," added Spence. "Whether it's adjusting our thermostats, remembering to turn off a fan when leaving the room or enjoying a nice evening grilling with family and friends, we're all just a click away from changing the current way we use energy to make our bills even lower."
