Heat Pump Water Heater

An electric water heater's energy consumption is about 20 percent of the average member's monthly bill. If your tank is over 10 years old, consider purchasing a heat pump water heater (HPWH).

 

How Does It Work?

A HPWH uses electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. Therefore, it can be two to three times more efficient than a standard resistance electric water heater.

May is Electrical Safety Month

The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), has designated May as National Electrical Safety Month. ESFI is a nonprofit organization that exclusively promotes electrical safety in the home, school and workplace. Each year 43,900 home fires result in 438 deaths, 1,430 injuries, and $1.47 billion in property losses. 

 

Generlink™ For Safety

May is the start of storm season in our area. Many members use a portable generator when outages occur. Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) highly recommends installing a transfer switch when powering your home's breaker panel with emergency power.

The transfer switch safely delivers generator power to a home's breaker panel instead of using extension cords. It also easily energizes such as water well pumps and furnace motors during power outages.

Shopping for a new appliance can be a daunting task. Before purchase, many factors must be considered such as brand, features, initial price and operating cost. 

Refrigerator Savings 

The refrigerator uses the most energy in your kitchen. It is running whether you are sleeping, away for work, on vacation, or watching television. Here are some helpful maintenance tips to save you some cash:
