Virginia Power use electricity wisely customers to weather i With months of summer heat :and humidity still ahead, Dominion Virginia Power is encouraging its customers to use energy wisely. Dominion is offering tips to ensure that customers remain safe and as comfortable as possible and save money. During times of extremely hot weather, residential elect- ricity usage can soar, leading to higher bills. Home energy con- servation reduces residential bills and helps to ensure there is enough electricity to meet all customers' needs. Dominion offers these tips to help lower electric bills and energy usage while keeping homes comfortable: Postpone activities that require hot water - such as washing dishes or clothes - to early morning or late evening. This will avoid add- ing more heat and humidity to the home. . Avoid using the stove if possible and consider grilling outside instead. Plan care- : fully to minimize the number encourages during ho of trips in and out of the home, which allow heat to enter. Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat. For every degree raised, custom- mers can save as much as 3 percent on cooling costs. Turn off unnecessary lights. They add to the heat in the home. Consider switching to cooler, energy- efficient CFL bulbs or LED bulbs. Use ceiling fans and portable floor fans to move the air around in the home. If the home does not have air conditioning, fans are essent- ial for cooling. In homes with air conditioning, fans allow residents to raise the thermostat and save energy without affecting comfort. Close drapes during the hottest times of the day to block heat from entering the home. Make sure window air conditioners are sized cor- rectly. Ones that are too small will run constantly but not cool the room. Ones that are too large use more energy than necessary. Clean filters in window air conditioning units and clean or replace filters in central air conditioning sys- tems. Clogged filters cause air conditioners to use more energy than necessary to keep a home cool.
