Ever wonder what's causing your APS or SRP energy bills to be so high? If your utility bills seem abnormally high it may be caused by something other than the weather. If you have gotten a letter from APS or SRP saying that you are using more energy than your neighbors something could be going on in your attic that's driving your energy bills up. If you have talked to your neighbors who have the same floor plan as you and keep the thermostat at the same temperature, but you are paying more every month to the utility company, those are familiar stories to our energy auditors at Green ID. As a rule of thumb, an energy efficient home will have a HIGH energy bill of $100 per 1,000 sq ft. So if you live in a 2100 sq ft home, your highest energy bill in July or August in Phoenix should be no more than $210 - $230… That said, how does your home measure up? Chances are if you are reading this post trying to solve why your APS or SRP energy bills are so high than your utility bills are maybe 1.5 – 2 times higher than our threshold.
Here are some reasons why your energy bills are so high and some DIY fixes you can do to lower them
Most homeowners never realize that having low energy bills, fixing hot rooms and making the home comfortable all year long is entirely possible without putting expensive solar panels on the roof! High energy bills may have less to do with what temperature you keep the thermostat at, and more to do with how the home was originally built.
