IN THE NEWS – Electric Bills to Double
The cost of energy is currently in the news and will be affecting many of our customers. Most sources indicate that HVAC accounts for 27% of the electric bill. Therefore, it is important for us to help customers understand the increase and how HVAC can impact their overall electric cost. The information below provides an overview of the situation and resources to research your options. We’ve also provided tips for lowering your electric bill through HVAC improvements.
Details About First Energy’s Rate Increase:
- First Energy bills will more than double starting June 1, 2023 through May 2024.
- Most of our service area will be impacted by this increase as Ohio Edison customers with the cost increasing from 5.3 cents per kilowatt hour to 12.39 cents/kwh.
- To avoid the higher price, Ohioans have the right to choose their energy provider.
- In NOPEC communities only, customers will be automatically switched to a lesser rate of $6.45 cents/kwh but almost all of the communities in our service area are not NOPEC. See NOPEC Map

Tips for Lowering Electric Bills through HVAC Improvements:
Since HVAC accounts for 27% of the overall electric bill, the Quality Team also plays a huge role in helping customers save on their electric. Here are tips for reducing energy costs through HVAC improvements:
- Annual Tune-ups improve energy efficiency by ensuring that your unit is operating optimally.
- Changing filters as recommended* means your system won’t have to work as hard. *We recommend changing traditional filters once a month and 5″ filters twice a year.
- Duct Sealing reduces air leakage in your vents delivering more cool air in the rooms in your home.
- A new Air Conditioner with higher seer ratings; such as those that are 16 SEER or 18 SEER, costs much less to operate than outdated units.
- Managing humidity with a whole home dehumidifier can reduce the amount that an air conditioner runs by taking humidity out of the air.
