Snohomish County PUD offers programs to stay warm, save energy and money

With consumers focusing on finding ways to save money, Snohomish County Public Utility District offers many energy-saving programs and ideas — including a range of conservation programs to assist customers with energy-efficiency measures in their homes.

Weatherization and Heat Pumps
Get help with adding insulation, insulated windows, heat pumps and thermostats. Choose between a cash rebate or low-interest loan (electrically-heated homes only). The PUD offers great options to help you pay for eligible energy-saving home improvements. For more information, visit www.snopud.com/weatherization.

Efficient Clothes Washers:
Save energy year-round with efficient appliances! The PUD offers rebates of $50 and $100 for approved clothes washers. These appliances help you save both energy and water. For more information, visit www.snopud.com/appliancerebates.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs:
Compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs remain a great way to save energy and money. Plus they’re becoming more closely priced to incandescent lights. They’re also available in more and more varieties – from spirals to globes to indoor/outdoor lights. CFLs use one-fourth the energy of incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times as long.

Winter Energy Savers
– Change your furnace air filters every two months during the heating season.
– Dress warmer on colder days; it’s less expensive than turning up the heat.
– Take advantage of natural daylight as much as possible.
– Use energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs.
– Buy efficient ENERGYSTAR appliances.
– Set your water heater no higher than 120 degrees.
– Use the cold water rinse for clothes washer loads.
– Cook with smaller appliances (electric frying pans, microwaves, toaster ovens).
– Keep your refrigerator at 38 degrees and freezer at 10 degrees.
