With the extreme winter weather we’ve already experienced in the County of Grimes and the very real possibility of more of the same to come, most everyone’s electric bill’s higher than they’re used to.
Entergy’s senior communications specialist wants you to know there’s lots you can do before the next cold snap that’ll help manage how much it’ll cost.
Kacee Kirschvink says just calking your windows and doors and making sure any holes in your foundation or siding are filled are some extremely simple, common sense steps you can take that could have a surprising effect on your next electric bill.
And that’s not all. To keep your bill from being so high in the really hot and cold weather, Kirschvink advises looking into levelized billing. That’s when your yearly electricity bill is averaged equally over all 12 months. And you can also pick what time of the month you’d like your bill to arrive.
Kirschvink says you can find all that information and more at entergy.com. That’s a good web address to keep close, she adds, because there’s been a uptick in phone scammers threatening disconnection. If you get a suspicious call, she advises, never give your personal information. Instead call 1-800-entergy and speak with a customer representative.
