Due to heat, Toronto Hydro asks residents to conserve

Toronto is in the midst of a heatwave, and as a result, officials are calling on the city's residents to conserve their energy use.

According to Toronto Hydro, demand for electricity is expected to be elevated over the next several days, primarily resulting from increased air conditioner use. The company is asking residents to keep cooling units set at 25 degrees Celsius – or 77 degrees Farenheit – between peak electricity use periods. Those time intervals are 7 a.m to 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the source states.

While this will put less strain on Toronto's energy grid, it will also put less of a burden on Torontonians' wallets. But Toronto Hydro says GTA residents can employ other cost-saving tips, such as by setting air conditioners one degree higher than one normally does and using a programmable thermostat.

Responsible electricity use is something Jiffy Self Storage takes seriously. That's why each unit is equipped with energy-efficient, easy-on-the-eyes lighting. Units are also climate-controlled, with temperatures adjusted accordingly depending on the weather conditions.
