Energy Saving Tips
Before leaving for extended periods of time, put indoor and outdoor lights on timers.
Use ceiling fans in occupied rooms to feel cooler. Be sure to turn fans off when those areas are not occupied.
Close blinds to keep out sun and reduce heat gain.
Turn off computers at the end of the day.
Unplug wireless and cell phone chargers when not in use.
Only use washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher with full loads. Remember to clean the lint filter after each load.
Plug air leaks around doors and windows and keep exterior doors closed as much as possible.
Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs and use dimmer switches when possible.
Consider a programmable thermostat.
Plant trees to shade your home. Call 811 before digging to avoid underground utility lines.
Use light colors to reflect light and heat when painting/repainting the exterior of a house.
Do not spend excessive time preheating your oven.
Maintain a minimum of R-30 insulation level in the attic to prevent loss of cool air.
