Energy Saving Tips

These tips are designed to help you choose effective ways to reduce your energy bills. Some measures may not be relevant depending on climate, the age of your home, appliances, and past improvements made to your home.

Turn Up Your Thermostat 

Set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you are home and 85 degrees when your are away.  Using ceiling or room fans allows you set the thermostat higher because the air movement will cool the room.  (Save: 1 -3% per degree, for each degree the thermostat is set above 72 degrees)

Use your Appliances Wisely 

Do your laundry efficiently by using warm or cold water setting for washing your clothes.  Always use cold water to rinse clothes. (Save: 4%)
Line dry clothes whenever you can. (Save: up to 5%)
When you need to use the dryer, run full loads, use moisture-sensing setting, and clean the clothes dryer lint trap after each use. (Save: 0.5%)
Conserve energy by running your dishwasher only when it is fully loaded, and turn off the dry cycle and air dry dishes instead. (Save: 1%)

Eliminate Wasted Energy 

Turn off appliances, lights and equipment when not in use. (Save:2%)
Unplug electronic devices and chargers when they are not in use. Most new electronics use electricity even when switched "off."  Turn computers and printers off at the power strip. (Save: 1 - 2%)

Replace Air Conditioner Filters 

Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause the system to run longer, increasing energy use. Replace filters monthly for maximum benefit.  (Save: 1 - 2%)
