As cooler temperatures move in, Sarah Fellows with Nolin Rural Electric Co-Op reminds homeowners to winterize their houses to avoid costly damage. “In the event of below-freezing temperatures, be sure to follow basic steps to keep your pipes from freezing like opening cabinet doors or keeping a small stream of water running at all times,” she said.
When heating the home, cut down on the electric bill by monitoring thermostat settings. “For every degree that you turn down your thermostat, you save two to three percent off of your heating cost,” stated Meter and Power Use Controller Jason Mattingly.
