Energy Ninja Tip – Four 226 226 Olympus Energy

Energy Ninja Tip – Four

Ninja Tip 4: Don’t Use Electric Heat Lamps as a Heating Substitute for the Furnace. At my workplace, we spent more money on electricity from heat lamps than on the gas we were saving by turning the thermostat down.  If we had just left the furnace at a normal temperature, we would have all been more…

Energy Ninja – Tip Three 226 226 Olympus Energy

Energy Ninja – Tip Three

Ninja tip 3: Do not close vents and registers in unused rooms. It does not save energy. When an energy ninja closes vents, the pressure in the ductwork system increases and the system needs to work harder to keep up the temperature. A harder working system is a higher energy use system. Also, higher pressure…

Albertans have low utility prices due to both deregulation (see Deregulation blog post) and its rich natural resources. Here we will address how Alberta’s rich resources lower our utility prices. Canada is the world’s 3rd largest producer of natural gas, and 75-80% of that production comes from Alberta. We get it cheap. Natural gas heats…

Door-to-Door Sales ban for energy related products in Alberta 361 240 Olympus Energy

Door-to-Door Sales ban for energy related products in Alberta

In January 2017, the Government of Alberta effected a door-to-door sales ban on energy related products and services due to hundreds of Albertans complaining of salespeople misrepresenting themselves as Government of Alberta members in order to aggressively sell HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning appliances) or energy contracts to Alberta residences. Generally, most companies were…

Deregulation 101 2000 667 Olympus Energy

Deregulation 101

  Albertans pay some of the lowest energy prices for their homes and businesses in North America. Why? Deregulation… that’s why. Deregulation is among the most confusing topics to take on.

Why Does My Energy Bill Fluctuate?

It makes sense that the more electricity and natural gas you consume, the higher your utility bill is, but why do the actual price of the gas and electricity jump around so much? On one hand, the ‘pay for what I use’ principle is very simple: The more I use – the more I pay makes…

How To Read Your Utility Bill? 1920 1280 Olympus Energy

How To Read Your Utility Bill?

  Reading the utility bill can be comparable to finding Where’s Waldo. You open the page, and standing there in bold font.. is the amount owing (Waldo). Ok, so more like a beginners game of Where’s Waldo. But have you ever ventured past the amount owing section of your utility bill?  If you have, you…
