Cotton Electric Cooperative works hard to hold down energy prices. You, too, can play an important role in improving the energy efficiency of your home and controlling your energy costs. First, start by evaluating your home and taking simple steps to trim unnecessary energy use.
Get a clear picture of which parts of your home use the most energy. The first step in reducing home energy costs is to review last year’s utility bills. Using the below national “percentage” averages, a homeowner who spent $2,500 a year for home energy would have paid roughly:
- $1,400 for heating and cooling
- $575 for appliances and lighting
- $400 for water heating
- $125 for refrigeration
