Money Saving Tips


Our concern for you doesn't begin and end with your project. We want to become your trusted advisor in all things electric. Check out some of our favorite money saving tips below!
  • Using motion & occupancy sensors to control the lighting; you only use electricity when you need it. 
  • Install timers on bath and attic fan heating systems. 
  • Use energy-saving light bulbs. These bulbs use less electricity but can also keep your home well lit. Plus, they last longer than the traditional incandescent bulb.
  • Use proper lighting. When it comes to lighting a room, more is not better. Too many lighting fixtures in a room just add to your electric bill.
  • Maintain a clean furnace. When your furnace is dirty, the motor has to work harder to keep your home warm. Putting unnecessary stress on the motor not only uses more energy, but also shortens the life of your furnace.
  • Keep the area clear around your air conditioner. By doing this, you’re allowing your air conditioner to operate at peak efficiency because you don’t stress the motor; stressing the motor makes it work harder, using more energy and shortening the life of the air conditioner.
  • Vacuum under your refrigerator. This allows your refrigerator to operate at peak efficiency

“Bretco suggested installing a timer on my water heater. I was surprised the difference it made on my power bill. You can set custom times for the heater to heat your water. Mine is set for 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening, 2 hours a day drawing 220 volts VS 24 hours a day is a big difference”
