Energy Conservation Tips

Were you aware that the typical U.S. household spends $1,900 a year on utility bills? This expense can be greatly reduced if family members are willing to make small changes in their lifestyles to lessen our foreign oil dependency, reduce their global footprint, and reduce their immediate energy costs.

To save energy today, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends:

  • Installing a programmable thermostat if you don’t already have one. If you do have one, then be sure it’s programmed. During the winter, keep the heat lowered while you are sleeping or away at work.

  • Using compact fluorescent light bulbs with the Energy Star label.

  • Air drying dishes and laundry, whenever possible, instead of using your machines’ dry cycles. Also, only wash full loads.

  • Turning off your computer and monitor when not in use.

  • Plugging home electronics like radios, TVs, DVD players and computers into power strips that you can turn off when the devices are not in use.

  • Keeping your hot water heater thermostat down to 120°F.

  • Converting your major appliances into Energy Star products, which meet the government’s strict efficiency standards.

  • Getting a home energy audit to pinpoint trouble areas in your home where energy is wasted. Some of these areas may include attic insulation, cracks in your housing structure, poorly maintained appliances, open fireplace dampers, door drafts, and lighting use.

  • Purchasing renewable energy equipment like photovoltaic cells, which convert solar rays into energy. You can put solar panels on your rooftop or even buy a solar water heater.
