PSC Wants Floridians to Save Wasted Energy

July 24th, 2008 by flanews

You could be using more energy than you have to and paying extra on your electric bill. The Florida Public Service Commission is asking people to get an energy audit on their house to cut energy cost. Today a PSC Commissioner offered up her home to an inspector. Inspector Dan Ard used an infrared camera to find heat sources. Ard said people can save money in the long run if they spend some up front.

Thats the thing the educational process needs to be better at, is to show people, that you might spend a little bit more up front, but youre going to save in the long run, said Ard.

Inspectors say leaving a ceiling fan on in an unoccupied room wastes electricity and does little to cool down a home. They also say black and dark colored shingles make a home harder to cool.
