The Effects of Hot Weather
As summer officially settles into Arkansas, the air conditioner units are running full blast and the water sprinklers are at full velocity! We at Benton Utilities ask each of you to help us provide reliable energy tomorrow by conserving today. Any conservation efforts, no matter how small, helps when everyone does their part. Small things such as setting your air conditioner thermostat at 78 degrees, utilizing ceiling fans and keeping all shades ...closed to deflect heat really helps conserve energy. As the nights only cool to the mid 70s, the “heat days” become a very vital part of our overall systems integrity. Heat days are the days and following nights when the outside air does not cool enough to allow the air conditioning unit in your house to stop running. These days and nights are rough on your equipment as well as Benton Utilities equipment.
