One of the most important things we can all do to prevent the spread of Coronavirus is simple, stay home. Whether you’re working from home, taking care of a loved one, or just staying safe, spending more time inside can also mean higher home energy bills.
While at home, LADWP encourages customers to follow these energy saving tips:
- Turn off lights when not in use! Instead open your curtains and let the sun shine in!
- Manage devices with a power strip. That prevents energy vampires like phone chargers and appliances from sucking up electricity when not in use
- And set your refrigerator temperature to the manufacturer’s recommendation to avoid excessive cooling.
We’re all hoping to be able to get back to normal daily life soon. In the meantime, these simple steps can help keep your home energy costs down.
