Save energy at home this summer

Save energy at home this summer

We understand that no one likes higher-than-expected energy bills. Here are some tips to reduce your energy use during the warmer months – without sacrificing your family’s comfort.

  • Tilt blinds up and close drapes on windows that receive direct sunlight.
  • Open windows in the evening to let cooler air in when safe.
  • Run your ceiling fan while your A/C is on; this will allow you to raise your thermostat about 4 degrees while maintaining the same level of comfort.
  • Enable “power management” on all computers and turn off when not in use.
  • Wash clothes in cold water. About 90 percent of the energy used in a clothes washer goes to water heating.
  • Postpone using heat-producing appliances like the oven, dishwasher and clothes dryer after 9 p.m.
  • On hot afternoons, consider leaving home, and going someplace cool like the shopping mall, movie theater or library.
