AEP Ohio's Top Tips for Energy Savings

January 11, 2022

GAHANNA, Ohio, January 10, 2022 – With winter taking hold, AEP Ohio, an American Electric Power (Nasdaq: AEP) company, is marking National Cut Your Energy Costs Day on January 10, 2022, with simple tips to make customers’ homes more energy efficient. 
 
“National Cut Your Energy Costs Day is a great day to make a list of what you can change in your home to create energy and financial savings this winter," said AEP Ohio Managing Director of Customer Experience Jon Williams. “By following these tips, you can make a difference in how much energy you use for home heating."
 
AEP Ohio's Top Tips: 
 
  • Caulk, seal, and apply weather strips to openings from your home to the outside. 
  • Service your heating system annually to maintain peak performance and avoid winter breakdowns.
  • Heat pump systems are environmentally friendly, super-efficient and cost effective when operated properly. Small (2 degree) thermostat setting changes are the key to low cost operation.
  • Replace or clean system filters at the frequency recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Unless your fireplace is equipped specifically for home heating, use it sparingly. Warm air escapes through the chimney.
  • Install a humidifier and set it at 35% to 40% humidity in the winter. This will help your home feel warmer at a lower temperature setting. 
  • Vacuum or dust air registers regularly and make sure they’re not blocked by obstacles like furniture.
  • Lower the thermostat during the day when no one is home and overnight while you are sleeping.
  • Open draperies and shades on south-facing windows to allow more sunlight and heat during the day, but remember to close them at night. 
AEP Ohio customers can view their daily and month-to-month energy usage, learn their highest usage day and sign up for high bill alerts on AEP Ohio's Energy Dashboard. They can log onto AEPOhio.com/Account to explore this tool.
