9 tips for saving energy
Reducing your energy use and saving money is easier than you'd think. Here are nine easy ideas you can implement today to help you do just that. That's smarter energy use.
Always turn off lights that you aren't using. Turning off a single 60 watt lightbulb that would otherwise be on for an eight-hour day save around $15 per year.
SLOW THE FLOW
Installing a low-flow shower head takes less than 10 minutes, but can cut your shower-time water use in half and can also save electricity.
Up to 90% of the energy your washing machine uses goes to heating water. Using the cold water laundry cycle can save $30-40 each year.
Replace old incandescent lights with compact fluorescent lightbulbs, which use 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer.
Install a programmable thermostat to automate your home's temperature settings whenever you're away. Used correctly, this can save you up to $150 a year.
FILL IT UP
Run your dishwasher & washing machine only when full. This simple choice can save you more than 3,400 gallons of water each year.
Home electronics can draw power even when not in use. Unplug unused devices and consider utilizing a power strip to turn off multiple items at once.
Drips and leaks aren't just annoying. They can cause damage and add to monthly bills. Repair water leaks quickly or report them to your landlord.
If your dryer cannot move air and heat effectively, laundry will take longer to dry. Cleaning the lint trap before each use can save you up to $34 each year.
