ComEd Energy Tips

By  | 

It's inevitable, we'll be paying more money to heat and cool our homes next year. But to help cut down on costs, Com-ed has launched an "energy efficient show case." About a dozen homes throughout Northern Illinois were chosen to undergo an "energy-efficient overhaul." ComEd is adding extra weather-stripping around windows and doors to help lower costs. They're also removing old appliances which can cause larger electric bills. "I think sometimes people think they can't control energy but there a re a lot they can do I love to mention the bulbs because they are a simple way to save energy," says Tim Melloch of ComEd. Tim says energy-efficient bulbs use 66-percent less energy than regular bulbs. They give off the same lighting and don't need to be replaced as often as well.
