Energy Saving Tips & Tricks
For great energy savings tips and information, check out the links below:
Here are some more great ideas:
Buy energy efficient light bulbs. They are just as bright, last much longer, and use far less electricity.
Turn off lights when they are not needed and when you leave a room.
Plant trees to save energy heating and cooling your home. Position the trees on the southern and western sides of the home.
Turn off the television when you are not in the room.
Use the microwave or toaster oven when you can instead of heating your conventional oven.
Buy appliances with high EER’s.
Don’t use the heater on the dishwasher. It will take longer for the dishes to dry, but you will use far less energy to do so.
Only run the dishwasher when there is a full load.
Unplug devices when not in use. Even though a device is “off”, as long as it is plugged in it will continue to use energy.
Don’t use the dryer when drying just a few articles of clothing.
Wrap the hot water heater with an insulation blanket.
Go easy on the use of hot water.
Turn the temperature down a few degrees on your hot water heater.
When cooking items on your stove or in your oven, turn the burners off a few minutes before your items are done. The heat already contained in the burner elements and the items being cooked will be enough to complete your cooking.
Put on extra clothing or a jacket and turn the heat down.
When not using the fireplace, keep the damper closed.
Install programmable thermostats to cut energy use.
