How can I save money on Electricity in Houston?


Published by Tara Energy

Living in Houston, you can expect mild winters and hot summers. It's just what happens when you live in a sub-tropic climate. Our springs and falls are beyond compare for pleasant weather, but when summer rolls around, there is almost a palpable sense of communal dread. When temps can easily break 100° in August, we need all the help we can get to keep our energy costs reasonable. Here are some tips for doing just that:

Keep the Thermostat Between 76 and 78

This may seem warm—until you step inside after being out in upper-90s Houston weather, that is. This setting will reduce your energy costs.

Use Appropriate Insulation and Sealant

Proper insulation and sealant will keep the cool air in and the hot air out.

Draw Your Shades

This is simple and quick. Sunlight through the windows will warm your house causing the AC to fight to control it. Pulling the shades and drawing the curtains can help keep the electric bill at bay.

Plant Shrubs and Trees Where Your Home Catches Sunlight

Improve the curb appeal of your home and save on your cooling bills at the same time. Natural shade does wonders for helping keep temps and costs down.

Switch to a Provider with Better Rates

This tip is easier to implement than you might think. Do some online research until you find a company that has rates more in line with your budget. It can pay to switch.

 

Being able to choose your electricity provider in Houston is a wonderful thing. With choices come healthy competition and great offers. Beyond excellent rates, there are some things you should expect from a reputable electricity retailer:

1. Great customer service

Customer service is the lifeblood of a company. Exemplary customer service is invaluable. Don’t settle for less than excellent.

2. Online bill management

You should be able to log in and track your account and pay your bill online.

3. Establishing service over the phone

You can expect to start service with a phone call, and some companies have an easy online signup option as well.

4. Moving to an out-of-service area should not incur a penalty

When life circumstances require you to move, you shouldn't be punished for leaving the provider's service area.

5. Contract expiration date

It is important to be aware of your contract expiration date. You should be able to locate it on your bill.

6. Convenient bill paying options

Some options include paying online, auto-pay from a bank account, check by mail, or cash.

Houston, like the rest of Texas, benefits from the deregulated energy market that gives consumers multiple options and keeps costs down by promoting healthy competition. To save the most money possible on your electric bill, you will certainly look for a company with low rates, but three other factors to look for that can help you maximize your savings are:

1. An Easy Switch-Over Process

Low deposits, the ability to switch immediately or at a specified future date, and the use of the same meters, poles, and wires all make using a new power provider more convenient and more cost-effective. Especially when relocating your home or business, it is crucial that the switch-over process be hassle-free and as low-cost as possible.

2. Numerous, Custom-Fit Plans

When it comes to electric plans, one size does not even come close to fitting every customer's situation. Those who buy in bulk and fear a sudden price spike may prefer a fixed rate. Those who don't mind the added risk may wish for a variable rate that could end up saving them money. Those who plan to remain in Houston long-term versus those unsure of the duration of their stay will fare better with customizable or no-contract lengths.

3. Simple Account Management

Confusion over how much you are being charged and for what makes it difficult to gauge your savings and, therefore, difficult to save. A simple, upfront bill that can be paid online, over the phone, or in person makes it easy to optimally manage your account and avoid late fees.

With a plethora of energy providers to choose from, it can be difficult for Houstonians to find the perfect plan--one that includes everything they need while still being affordable. 

  1. Start at PowerToChoose.org

    The first place to start is Power To Choose. This state-sanctioned website allows consumers to search for energy providers by rates and plans, helping them narrow down their choices to a few top contenders. In addition, Power To Choose maintains a record of complaints against individual energy providers, which add up to an overall scorecard. 

  2. Don't be afraid to customize

    Is there a part of an offered plan that isn't ideal? The best companies will allow you to customize your electricity plan so you can create a plan that is perfect for you. Whether it's regarding switching, hybrid products, or indexed contracts, it never hurts to ask.

  3. Keep an eye on the market 

    If your plan is on a month-by-month basis, it can really save you some cash to keep an eye on the energy market and see which providers are offering the lowest electricity rates. These can fluctuate regularly, so switching plans or providers can pay off.
