8 Basic Tips to Start Saving Energy

8 Basic Tips to Start Saving Energy

Energy Efficiency is easy! Below are just a few basic tips that will help you start saving energy at home (or work).

  1. Replace heater and air conditioner air filters once a month.
  2. Spotlight your home office or school workspaces to use only the light you need.
  3. Avoid opening the oven door to check on what’s cooking – when opened, the oven temperature drops as much as 25 degrees and then has to use more energy to heat back up.
  4. Run ceiling fans counter-clockwise to circulate warm air and clockwise to push cool air down.
  5. Install energy-efficient LED light bulbs, which use 5 times less energy and last up to 15 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
  6. Open your window coverings for natural light and warmth in the cooler months and close them in the warmer months.
  7. Unplug electronics when they’re not in use – even if turned off while plugged in, they still use energy.
  8. Air dry dishes instead of using your dishwasher’s drying cycle.
