Energy Saving Tips

  1. Energy Saving Tips

Save Energy and Money this Summer:

Keep Cool While Saving Energy

Use ceiling fans in the counter-clockwise direction (downward) to cool more efficiently.

Add Simple Weatherization for Energy Efficiency

Use reflective window film this summer to help reduce heat gain while also keeping furniture and carpets from fading.

Save on Outdoor Lighting Costs

Use outdoor lights with a photocell unit or motion sensor so they will turn on only at night or when someone is present. A combined photocell and motion sensor will increase your energy savings even more.

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.

Bathroom

  • 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.
