With winter coming and colder conditions on the way, all of our energy bills will be higher. Snohomish County PUD offers many ways to help keep your bills in check. The PUD recommends setting your thermostat at 68⁰ when you’re home and awake and 55⁰ when you’re away or asleep. Remember, the greater the difference between the outside temperature and your thermostat setting, the more energy you’ll use.
Here are just some of the conservation programs the PUD offers to help customers save:
Weatherization & Heating Instant Rebates
Upgrades from single-pane to double-pane windows carry a rebate of $6 per square foot. Heat pump rebates up to $1,500 also are available ($600 for ductless). In addition, the PUD provides rebates for upgrading the insulation level in your home’s attic, floor, wall and ducts. For more information, click here for weatherization and here for heating.
More Efficient Lighting
The PUD continues to offer discounts on LED bulbs at a network of local retailers. More and more consumers are turning to LEDs, which are highly efficient and last up to 20 years. For local retailers, click here.
