4 heating tips to save you money

Even though your energy consumption may decrease during the winter months, there are still ways to save even more.

  1. Have your heating system serviced at least once a year to maintain its efficiency.
  2. Replace disposable air filters or clean permanent ones at least once a month.
  3. Set your thermostat between 68 and 70 degrees when you are home and at 65 degrees or lower when you are away
  4. Keep drapes open during the day to let the heat in and close them at night to help retain the heat

What are your New Year's resolutions?

As one of the Valley’s leading suppliers of water, SRP encourages you to conserve our most precious resource. Here are some tips to get your 2022 started right:

  • Convert grass to xeriscape (low-water-use landscaping).
  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads only.
  • Install water-saving aerators on all faucets.
  • Find and fix leaks. One drip every second adds up to 5 gallons per day.
  • Designate one glass for drinking water each day or refill a reusable water bottle to reduce the number of glasses that need to be washed.

DID YOU KNOW?

Trees near power lines

Trees can create safety hazards when they grow too close to power lines. To avoid these hazards, follow these suggestions from experts at SRP. Before planting a new tree, find out its mature height and spread and locate it at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines. Be sure to stay safe and call 811 prior to digging. This call lets local utilities know to mark the location of existing underground lines before you dig.

Go to srp.net/treeprune for more details.

Right Tree Right Place: SRP has partnered with municipalities throughout the Valley to replace trees that must be removed for safety reasons. For every tree removed, two to three new trees are then planted at nearby parks, schools and neighborhoods, helping to create more urban tree coverage.

 

Canal dry-up safety

Through early February, SRP will be draining sections of the canal system to inspect, clean and repair canal infrastructure. For your safety, obey all signage and honor barricades along canal banks. Under no circumstances should you enter the canals.
