    • Dave was very knowledgeable and courteous. He showed me how to work things and tested everything multiple times finding a very small leak in the stove.

    Ask The Energy Expert- Bogus Energy Claims

    Last updated 1 day 8 hours ago

    The chart pictured here represents the average energy consumption of for a typical Florida Home. I show you this because many people who are selling products often make claims that exaggerate their products ability to save you on energy costs.

    As you can see, our largest energy cost in Florida is cooling. Approximately 41% of your electric bill will be your cost to cool your home. Given this fact, how could any product offer to save you 50% on your electric bill? It would be extremely difficult to save you 50% on the portion that is cooling and that would only represent 20% of your overall electricity cost! Water heating is usually between 14-19% depending on the size of your family. A water heater that is 30% more efficient than what you have will save between 4-6% of your total bill. Real energy savings through upgrades are difficult to achieve. Using conservation measures often will save you equally as much money as upgrades to equipment. For example, each degree you adjust your thermostat will cost you between 4-7% of your cooling or heating costs. That can be substantial savings.

    So, be careful of bogus energy saving claims. If you are ever in doubt, contact your energy experts at Florida Public Utilities. We are committed to telling you the energy truth! www.fpuc.com/energyexpert

    Lowering the Price of Your Natural Gas Bill

    Last updated 4 days ago

    Reducing your  energy consumption isn’t just good for your pocketbook; it’s also beneficial for the environment. If you’re concerned that your energy bills are too high, there are a number of simple steps you can take to reduce your home’s energy use. Here are some ways you can keep your natural gas bill down while still enjoying a comfortable home.

    Install a programmable thermostat

    The best way to ensure that you’re not overusing your cooling system is to turn it off whenever your home is unoccupied. By installing a programmable thermostat, you can ensure that your household stays at an optimum temperature whenever you and your family are home, while keeping it from running needlessly when no one is home. Programmable thermostats can save you as much as $100 a year on energy.

    Make sure your home is well-insulated

    Proper insulation is a must for conserving energy; you can reduce a lot of the energy expenditure in your home simply by sealing off any places where air can leak out. Make sure that your home’s windows and doors are weatherproofed, and check for air leaks in areas such as attics, basements, pipes and wires, and crawl spaces.

    Upgrade to energy-efficient equipment

    The older an appliance is, the more energy it is likely to use. If your home’s air conditioner and water heater are more than a decade old, replacing them with more current models will help you conserve energy. Installing Energy Star approved appliances will also help ensure that you are using only as much energy as you need in your house.

    Your Florida energy provider can provide you with a free energy checkup to identify where you are wasting energy in your home.
