Energy Saving Tips

Install a programmable thermostat to
keep your house warm in the winter
and cool in the summer.

Lower the thermostat on your hot
water heater to 120F°.

Regularly change (or clean if reusable)
your HVAC filters to not only save
money, but improve your indoor air

Plug home electonics, such as
computers, monitors, TVs and DVD
players into power strips and turn the
power strips off when the equipment
is not in use. (Even in standby mode,
they still use several watts of power)

Comfort is a function of temperature,
humidity, and air movement. Moving
air can make a somewhat higher
temperature and/or humidity feel
comfortable. Utilize your home's
celling fans or box fans to keep air
moving and save on your energy bills.

Sealing and properly insulating duct
work can help reduce energy costs
and prevent air leakage. This is
especially important when ducts run
through unconditioned spaces (attic,
crawl spaces, etc.).

Wash only full loads of dishes and
clothes, it uses the same amount of energy and water.

Upgrading your current HVAC system
with a newer, more efficient model will
help your energy usage. It is also
important that a qualified contactor
properly sizes the equipment and
ductwork. (See our cost calculator on the home page.)

Keep your HVAC system running as
efficiently as possible with annual
preventive maintenance.

Make sure your air conditioning
system has a proper refrigerant
charge. A qualified HVAC technician
will check this as part of your system's
routine maintenance and make any
necessary adjustments.

Take showers instead of baths.

Air dry dishes instead of using your
dishwasher's drying cycle.

Drive sensibly. Aggressive driving
(speeding, rapid acceleration and
braking) wastes gasoline.

Buy only appliances and products
with the ENERGY STAR® label.

Use compact fluorescent light bulbs
(CFLs) with the ENERGY STAR® label.

Use your home's window treatments
(blinds, curtains, etc.) to help control
the sun's effect on your indoor
temperature. Depending on your
home's exposure to sunlight, opening
your window treatments in the winter,
and shutting them in the summer will
let nature do some of the work.

Turn up your humidifier in the winter.
Properly humidified air "feels" warmer
than dry air so you'll be able to turn
your thermostat down a couple of
degrees without affecting your
comfort level.
