Happy Maintenance Monday! This week’s tip is about BGE’s Peak Rewards program. If you are on the peak rewards program during the summer months, BGE will periodically power down your air conditioner during the peak usage time. You will be able to determine if BGE has your air conditioner in the power down mode simply by checking your thermostat. The word “Savings” will appear on the screen of your thermostat, and you may notice that the indoor blower fan will be running when the outdoor condenser unit is not running. To keep your apartment cooler during the day especially when BGE does a power down, keep your window shades pulled down to block the sun light and keep your drapes closed. Also if you are not in a room, remember to turn off all lights and other electrical components in that room as they produce heat. Keep cool and have a great week!
