outage. Customers can sign up for alerts at aps.com/alerts.
- Make sure your AC is in top condition – APS recommends
performing an advanced AC tune-up once every six years. In the Phoenix area,
the ideal time is in April and May when temperatures are above 75 degrees. If a
customer uses a participating contractor, APS offers a $95 incentive per
system. For a list of participating contractors, visit aps.com/tuneup.
- Save energy and money – Customers can learn
their energy savings potential by taking advantage of the Energy Analyzer survey on aps.com and receive customized tips. To receive the most
benefit, APS recommends getting a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Checkup – for just $99 (a $400 value). A specially trained contractor can
diagnose a home and identify energy saving upgrades. For more ways to save,
visit aps.com/options. To ensure savings on cooling costs remember
“It’s as easy as 1-2-3.” For every 1 degree AC units are turned up, customers
can save 2 to 3 percent on their cooling costs monthly.
- Get ready
for monsoon season – Customers
should create an emergency supply kit that
contains non-perishable food items, water, a first-aid kit, a battery-operated
radio, flashlights, extra batteries and any necessary medication. They can also
download the APS mobile app beforehand to view APS’s outage map, report an outage and more. During a storm, stay a safe distance from
structures and power poles. Always assume that downed power lines are energized,
and remain a safe distance away (50+ feet). More info? Visit aps.com/safety.
- Prepare for wildfire season – APS crews clear vegetation around wooden
utility poles, minimizing wildfire danger and preventing power loss. Customers can help by pruning bushes and shrubs and removing tall,
dry grasses from surrounding property.
