The cold season is coming, meaning the air conditioner is turning off, and the furnace or heat pump is switching on.

To help residents save money on their energy bills, James City County is offering a class on using less energy at 6 p.m. on Nov. 13 at the Human Services Center, 5249 Olde Towne Road.

The class will be lead by energy auditor Mike Padgett, according to a news release from the county.

Padgett will cover several topics, including lighting, appliances, water usage and other ways to save money as a homeowner or renter.

He will also discuss ways to prepare for the winter months and get assistance if the heating bills are too high.

Those interested in attending should call 757-259-5393 to reserve a seat.
