[ARCHIVED] Con Edison urges Smart Energy Usage

CON EDISON URGES SMART ENERGY USAGE
AS INTENSE HEAT BAKES NY
Customers Can Save Money With Conservation

Con Edison reminds its customers they can save energy and money by using their air conditioners and other appliances wisely when scorching hot weather hits New York this weekend.

With temperatures forecast to reach 90 degrees through early next week, New Yorkers are advised to follow these money-saving conservation tips:

• Con Edison offers a variety of energy-efficiency programs for this summer. The Smart AC Program connects customers with smart technology to control their room air conditioners from their computer or mobile device. Learn more by visiting: https://conedsmartac.com
• Set your air conditioning to the highest comfortable temperature. Every degree you lower the thermostat drives up your bill by 6 percent;
• To reduce heat and moisture in your home, run appliances such as ovens, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or late at night when it’s cooler outside;
• Cook with a microwave or barbecue outside, if possible;
• When the AC is running, close doors to keep cool air in and hot air out;
• Keep shades, blinds and curtains closed. About 40 percent of unwanted heat comes through windows;
• Even when using AC, use ceiling and other fans to provide additional cooling and better circulation;
• Turn off AC units, lights and other appliances when not at home and use a timer or smart technology to turn on your air conditioner about a half-hour before arriving home;
• Keep AC filters clean;
• If you run a business, keep your door closed while the AC is running. Don’t burn through your profits to cool the street;
• Replace old appliances with new energy efficient Energy Star appliances.

Replacing an old air conditioner with a new ENERGY STAR unit can reduce energy usage by 30 percent. Con Edison will pay a $30 rebate to customers who buy a new ENERGY STAR air conditioner.

Con Edison will have crews ready to respond to any service problems that arise due to the demand on its energy-delivery system.

Customers can report outages and check service restoration status at www.conEd.com or by calling 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.
Customers who report outages will be called by Con Edison with their estimated restoration times as they become available.
Also, download Con Edison’s new free iPhone and Android app, My conEdison, to report and check the status of a power problem, and view the company’s interactive online outage map.
