CPS Energy recommends these safety and energy conservation tips, especially during peak demand:

Safety tips:

  • Do not use a natural gas stove as a heat source for your home.
  • Ensure that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly.
  • If using a natural gas space heater, open a nearby window at least 1-inch to ventilate the room and lower the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Keep flammable material away from any natural gas appliances such as water heater or stove.

Conservation tips:

  • Set the thermostat to 68 degrees during day and 65 degrees overnight.
  • Use ceiling fans at lowest setting and in reverse mode to circulate warm air that is trapped near the ceiling.
  • Limit use of appliances with high energy consumption, i.e. washing machines, dryers, dishwashers and water heaters.
  • Turn off electrical appliances and unplug chargers not in use.
  • Turn off portable electrical heaters and lights when not needed or in empty rooms.
  • Layer clothing for extra comfort.
  • Seal any holes or gaps with towels or other material to keep out cold air and prevent heat from escaping. Make long-term repairs as soon as possible.
