Is Your Evergy Bill Increasing? Eric’s Heating and Cooling Can Help

In the news: Evergy (Kansas City’s local utility billing service) deals a blow to our living expenses by announcing higher utility bills will be charged to customers before the winter of 2023. 

The good news: You have a trusted Heating and Cooling Company in Kansas City with Eric Kjelshus Energy, who will help deflect the blow of increased energy bills.  

Why Is My Utility Bill So High? Response from a Heating and Cooling Expert

Don’t you wish you could find another energy company with lower prices, like finding the best grocery store that works better for your budget? Competition with utility billing services sounds good.  The lack of competition is causing high utility bills. Evergy customers also have to deal with tiered plans, which charge higher rates during the hours when you are most likely to use more energy; that’s pretty sly if you ask me.  To lower our utility bills, we are left fighting back by playing their game. And here’s another thing: Did you receive the Evergy flyer in the mail offering HVAC services that will be included with their billing? Wow, they know high utility bills will not be received well – and is that a conflict of interest?

What Eric Recommends To Save on Your Power Bill

According to our utility billing service’s tiered peak energy use plans, we could fight back by running the washer, dryer, stove, and other appliances during the low peak hours. It’s not a convenient plan for most of us, but it is an energy-saving strategy. You could also turn down the thermostat during sleeping hours. Most of us do not need the water heater to be set on high, so lowering the water heater’s temperature also helps.

Eric Kjelshus is an HVAC expert who can effectively lower energy bills through energy audits. Based on your situation, Eric will make the best recommendations to lower energy costs. The rates for energy audits will vary according to residential or commercial requirements, the size of your property, and the type of energy audit performed. As a general rule, however, energy audits for your home will cost you $250 to $500, but they can save you thousands of dollars.   

 How Eric’s Energy Audit Will Lower Your Power Consumption
