Year-Round, Every Day Energy Tips by Room

Whole House

  • Easiest way to start saving is to turn off all fans and lights in unoccupied rooms or when you no longer need them.
  • During the heating season, open the drapes and take advantage of the sun’s warmth and give your heater a break.
  • It takes more energy to pump air into a space where the vents are blocked, unblock vents where possible.
  • Use a smart thermostat to program your schedule to adjust the temperature while you are sleeping and away.

Living Room

  • Install a smart power strip on your electronic entertainment centers to cut down on unnecessary plug load.
  • Unplug your phone/watch chargers when they are not in use.
  • Use a ceiling fan so you can turn down your AC, but be sure to turn it off when you leave the room.


  • Take a 10-minute shower instead of a bath to save water and money on your heating bill.
  • Install a properly sized ENERGY STAR® vent fan to control moisture in the air while you shower.
  • Install low flow shower heads and faucet aerators to conserve water.
Laundry room with dryer, washer and sink

Laundry Room

  • Save energy by giving your dryer a break and hanging your clothes out to dry.
  • Clean your lint trap between each dryer load to maximize air flow and efficiency of your dryer.
  • Wash full loads with cold water whenever possible. If you must wash partial loads, reduce the level of water appropriately.
