An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this PECO Energy phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like PECO Energy staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy day to call PECO Energy is Monday. The most busy day to call is Wednesday, which averages 66% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 219 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.
The shortest wait on hold
We measured the shortest hold times to be on Wednesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Monday.

More Ways to Contact PECO Energy Customer Service

There are of course other ways to contact PECO Energy customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.
X (formerly Twitter) - Customer Service
Use the link to connect with customer service through Twitter
PECO Energy, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.
PECO Energy's website
As a last, sometimes only, resort- PECO Energy customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
