JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - As temperatures continue to drop, many people will be turning on the heat, and JEA is releasing some efficient ways to reduce power consumption.
Jerry McInarnay is an energy efficiency analyst for JEA. He said the first way you can lower your bill is by setting your thermostat to 68 degrees.
"A couple things we can do -- gradually heat the home. We can bump the thermostat up 1 to 2 degrees," said McInarnay. "If we crank it up more than 2 degrees it's not uncommon for the auxiliary heat to engage."
