Don't overpay for electricity, discover the problem today
A man called us to report that his electric bill had jumped from about $150 a month to more than $500. He could not figure out what the problem was because there was rarely anyone staying in the home. When he turned off the water heater, though, the bill went down substantially.
A bad water heater is a chief cause of skyrocketing electric bills, but it’s not the only one. If you have a pool pump that is constantly in use, a faulty thermostat, or you have a refrigerator or a freezer with a bad door seal you could be paying much more than you need to.
There are other causes as well. Air conditioners and furnaces can spike an energy bill if they are not working efficiently. When you have more people in your home for more hours of the day, that will also boost a bill. If you have children who are out of school, for example, you can expect your bills to increase substantially. You may be using the computer more than usual, or you may have recently purchased a new television, and that may be another cause.
Call Jones today and we can send someone to your home to see if you have faulty equipment that may be contributing to larger-than-normal bills.
