Ameren offers tips and resources to help customers maximize energy efficiency at home this spring
ST. LOUIS (April 19, 2023) – With Earth Day around the corner, Ameren is sharing some easy ways for its customers to have a positive impact on the environment while reducing monthly energy bills.
To help customers achieve maximum energy cost savings, Ameren suggests tackling these high priority “spring cleaning” projects:
“Spring is a great time to give the often-neglected areas of our homes, like cooling systems and sections heavily impacting air flow, some attention to keep them running efficiently,” said Tony Lozano, director of energy solutions at Ameren Missouri. “Dust and grime can easily build up and cause your home to work harder, which you ultimately see on your energy bill.”
Providing customers with energy savings tips is part of Ameren’s ongoing commitment to help them minimize their energy expenses without sacrificing comfort. Ameren believes that the first step to take toward energy savings starts with a home energy assessment. You can learn where your home uses energy and discover ways to save on your monthly energy statement. You may even qualify for a free, no-obligation assessment in Missouri or Illinois with installation of products like LED lightbulbs, smart thermostats and advanced power strips.
Big Savings with Smart Thermostats
Warmer weather is around the corner, and Ameren is offering a special promotion on smart thermostats in each state. For a limited time, customers in Missouri and Illinois can purchase a Google Nest or Sensi Smart Thermostat for $0 (plus shipping and sales tax).
"Smart thermostats can help customers save between 10% to 20% on their heating and cooling costs,” said Kristol Simms, vice president of clean energy transition, economic, community and business development at Ameren Illinois. “With the increase in energy supply costs, this is a gift every Ameren Illinois customer can benefit from for years to come."
The thermostats featured in the spring promotion make a home eligible for Ameren Missouri’s Peak Time Savings program. On the occasional peak hot days that create a heavier demand for energy, the program precools your home, which helps you stay comfortable during Peak Time Savings events. Those who enroll in the program earn a $50 sign-up bonus and will receive a yearly $25 credit on their energy statements.
