Energy-saving tips to help you save energy and money

Low- or no-cost energy-saving tips that can help you save throughout your home this heating season!

  • Lower the thermostat by 10° F at night or when you’re away for at least eight hours, and you can potentially save 10 percent on your space heating costs.
  • Reducing the water heater temperature setting helps you save energy long-term because water heating accounts for approximately 18 percent of the average home’s energy use. Set your water temperature to no higher than 120° F for energy efficiency and comfort to prevent scalding.
  • Run your ceiling fan in reverse mode on a low-setting in the winter to move warm air that rises down and more evenly through a room.
  • Prevent air leaks by checking and repairing all cracked, separated or missing exterior caulking and weather stripping, especially around windows and entry doors, as well as checking roof and soffit vents for possible air-flow obstructions.
  • Buy foam gaskets and install them behind electrical outlets to seal air leaks.
  • Keep your home’s windows air-tight by simply locking your windows to tighten the seal which keeps your home’s warm air from leaking outside.
  • Clean or change your furnace filters regularly. A dirty furnace filter will slow down air flow, making the system work harder to keep you warm and costing you more money. 
Learn about all the ways you can be more energy efficient.

What to do if you smell gas

The odor of rotten eggs is not pleasant and is highly distinctive, which is exactly why we add that smell to natural gas and why you need to take the following precautions when you smell it:

  • Leave immediately on foot.
  • If you’re outside and suspect a gas leak, leave immediately on foot in an upwind direction away from the leak and maintain a safe distance.
  • Do NOT flip a light switch, strike a match, smoke, or use a car, cell phone, generator, flashlight or anything that might cause a spark.
  • Do NOT turn off the gas meter or attempt to operate any pipeline valves.
  • Once you are safely away from the area, report possible gas leaks to 911 and CenterPoint Energy’s gas leak hotline at 888-876-5786.

We’re helping out in your community

CenterPoint Energy’s annual United Way campaigns are in full swing across the states and communities we serve.  During our campaigns, our employees learn about their local United Way agencies and their work to meet community needs.  In addition, United Way Days of Caring are held in certain cities with our employees volunteering where they can.  For example, in Minneapolis, the Greater Twin Cities United Way Action Day attracted almost 80 employees, family members and friends to Target Field to help assemble 25,000 backpacks full of school supplies so students were prepared for their return to school.
