SUMMER HEAT, TAKE TWO
Con Edison Urges Conservation as 2nd Hot Spell in 2 Weeks Hits NYC
 
NEW YORK – Con Edison encourages its customers to use energy wisely and save money as hot weather envelops the New York City region again later this week.
 
New Yorkers are advised to follow these money-saving conservation tips:
 
 
  •          Set your air conditioning to the highest comfortable temperature. Every degree you lower the thermostat  drives up your bill by 6 percent;
  •          To reduce heat and moisture in your home, run appliances such as ovens, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or late at night when it’s cooler outside;
  •          Cook with a microwave or barbecue outside, if possible;
  •          When the AC is running, close doors to keep cool air in and hot air out;
  •          Keep shades, blinds and curtains closed. About 40 percent of unwanted heat comes through windows;
  •          Even when using AC, use ceiling and other fans to provide additional cooling and better circulation;
  •          Turn off AC units, lights and other appliances when not at home and use a timer or smart technology to turn on your air conditioner about a half-hour before arriving home;
  •          Keep AC filters clean;
  •          If you run a business, keep your door closed while the AC is running. Don’t burn through your profits to cool the street;
  •          Replace old appliances with new energy efficient Energy Star appliances.
 
Con Edison offers a variety of energy-efficiency programs for this summer. The Smart AC Program connects customers with smart technology to control their room air conditioners from their computer or mobile device.

Also, download Con Edison’s new free iPhone and Android app, My conEdison, to report and check the status of a power problem, and view the company’s interactive online outage map.
