I did. Paid a lot for it. But seen nothing in savings. This year it was well change out to led baulbs. I did all 33 of them. And I changed my mercury outside light to a led. Gess what. Bill has not changed. Oh ya. They did come and install a new “smart meter” this summer. I think it’s all a big hoax to make them more money.

  6. We keep the thermostat low and get used to lower temperature naturally. Also, use humdifier. Then lower even more at night. In the summer cool just enough to get rid of humidity.
