August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #355: Checking on your utility bills

Tip of the Week

If you have any doubts about the cost of your utilities (bills), call those companys. Telephone numbers are on the bill (front/back). With rising cost of utilities (gas/electric), I want to know WHY! They can also give you advice on how to lower your usage; some companies will come to your home for a thorough check for you. BUT..remember..if you HAVENīT called them, and someone comes to your door saying they will check for you, donīt let them in before calling the company to see if they are sending someone around to homes. Always ask for identification from the person at your door, they could mean to do you harm. If you live alone, call a neighbor to be with you during this time.
