The 2014 PECO Smart A/C Saver season starts on June 1st. If you’ve enrolled in the program, PECO will have installed a switch on the outside of your home near the central air conditioning unit to allow them to cycle your air conditioning during conservation events. When regional energy demand is high, this switch will receive a radio signal that will put your A/C compressor into a “conservation mode.”
What does this mean for the air inside your home? In conservation mode, your compressor will operate 15 minutes of each half hour during a conservation event, which can last for four hours or more.
Concerned about your family’s comfort level? During the entire conservation event, your A/C fan will run normally, circulating air throughout your home. A conservation event will only occur on weekdays between noon and 8 p.m.
Ready for the best part? Participating in the PECO Smart A/C Saver program will earn you a $20 bill credit each month during the summer – that’s a total of $80 for the summer cooling months of June through September.
What would you do with an extra $80 and a clean energy conscience?
