FPL - A Real Value


Summer is nearly here which we all know means pushing our A/C’s even harder to keep us comfy. This is also a time when many of us see our FPL bills go up. But did you know it’s not the price of energy that’s changing, we’re all just using more of it in the summer.

In fact, FPL’s typical customer bill has gone down by 13 percent since 2006, while other necessities like food and healthcare continue to skyrocket. Don’t just take my word for it. Check out the chart below to see how we compare to the other essentials in your life.

Another interesting note: Did you know that most of us can power our whole home for less than the price of a cup of coffee per day? See how the cost of electricity stacks up against other purchases like the slice of pizza you buy for lunch or an afternoon energy drink.

Visit FPL.com for more information on how the price of your electricity compares to everyday purchases.

    The easiest way to make your home more energy efficient is to seal any air leaks, and one that is often overlooked is the bathroom ventilation fan and exhaust vent. The back-draft flap these units come with do a very poor job of stopping leaks. To address this issue, I use a replacement insert fan from the Larson Fan Company (online). Their fans has a true damper built in, that does a great job in keeping warm air in during the winter and hot, humid air out in the summer. This product has reduced my annual energy bills by over ten percent. It saves the most when air conditioning is being used.
