Dominion offers hot tips to cool off energy bill

RICHMOND (WTVR) – As it warms up Dominion Virginia Power wants you to start thinking about how you can save energy and lower your electricity bill.

First find appliances that don’t need to be operated, and unplug them.

Try using a power strip for chargers around the house, and turn it off at night.

On hot days, try cooking with a microwave or on an outdoor grill.

Plant trees or shrubs around air conditioning units, the heat pump can operate up to 10 percent more efficient in the shade.

And finally, use a ceiling fan, so it feels cooler.
