Six Ways to Save Energy

(Woman’s Day)

  • Set your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night.
  • Keep lamps and TVs away from air-conditioning thermostats. The heat produced can cause the air conditioner to run longer.
  • Reduce trips to the refrigerator. Each time the door is opened, up to 30% of the cold air can escape.
  • Take a look at your furniture arrangement. Make sure vents and radiators aren’t blocked by sofas, chairs or other items.
  • Remove lint from the dryer filter. A dirty one can increase energy use by up to 30%.
  • Give your home an energy audit. Go to Home Energy Saver to calculate your home’s energy use by zip code and find out the best ways for you to save energy.
