Retail electric providers servicing Terrell, TX
Are you looking for a Terrell electric company that meets your energy needs and provides stellar customer service? As you compare electricity rates between providers, you should keep in mind how your home uses energy.
The average home in Texas pays $1,801 a year for energy usage. Like other warm weather states, this figure is about 26% higher than the national average. Of this amount, 18% goes toward air conditioning while 22% goes toward home heating. You can save on your climate control costs by turning your thermostat up a degree or two in the summer and a degree or two lower in the winter. Programming your thermostat to reduce energy usage at the times of day when no one is home can also help lower your bills.
Water heating accounts for another 19% of your annual energy costs. If you can't afford to upgrade to an on-demand water heater, you may be able to save by lowering the temperature of the water you use for bathing, dishes, and laundry. The rest of your energy bill goes toward things like your TV - nearly every Texas household has one, and 80% of households have more than one - your electronic devices, appliances both large and small, and your lighting. Compare energy-efficiency ratings before replacing these items or purchasing new ones, and opt for CFL or LED light bulbs to replace your incandescent bulbs.
