Jump Start Your 2024 Savings Goals by Cutting Energy Costs

APS offers ways to save for National Cut Your Energy Costs Day

 

With 2024 here, many Arizonans are making a New Year’s resolution to save money. January 10 marks National Cut Your Energy Costs Day to encourage people to explore energy-saving options and highlight how even simple steps could help reduce monthly bills.

 

Here are some easy and effective ways to kick-start an energy efficient 2024:

  • Explore your Rate Plan Options: APS offers a variety of plans to suit your lifestyle and budget. As an example, many customers on Time-of-Use 4-7pm Weekdays and Time-of-Use 4-7pm Weekdays with Demand Charge plans consistently save the most money with no or minimal behavior changes. APS customers can log in to their account to compare plans, and APS representatives are happy to help find the right plan for you.
  • Switch to LED bulbs: LED bulbs use 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last 25 times longer - so not only are you paying less on energy costs, but you won’t have to purchase bulbs as often! LEDs are one of the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective ways to save.
  • Get and optimize a smart thermostat: Smart thermostats change the game when it comes to operating your heating and air-conditioning unit. Pre-set heating and cooling preferences based on your schedule and rate plan. APS customers may save even more with a rebate when they buy a smart thermostat through the APS Marketplace. Once installed, join the APS Cool Rewards program to receive an annual bill credit. Visit aps.com/CoolRewards for details.
  • Seal those gaps: Look around your home for drafts or leaks and seal them to keep your house warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.
  • Optimize your Laundry: A washing machine uses 90% of its energy to heat water, so wash your clothes with cold water.
  • Consider energy-efficient appliances: When it is time to replace appliances, check out energy-efficient appliances that perform better than their counterparts and consume less energy. Look for the ENERGY STAR label when shopping.
  • Not in use? Unplug it: In a typical home, lights, chargers, laptops and televisions are almost always plugged in. While not in use, they continue to use power and can add an unnecessary cost to your monthly bill.
  • Find other hidden home savings: APS offers a free Virtual Home Energy Checkup for customers. Get advice from an energy advisor as you tour your home together virtually, using a smartphone or tablet. Your advisor will make recommendations for saving energy based on your unique needs. Learn more and sign-up at aps.com/checkup.
