Save Energy

Here are 10 ways to conserve energy in your home this winter.

  1. Use LED holiday light strings to reduce the cost of decorating your home for the winter holidays and set lights on timers.
  2. Turn down the temperature of your water heater to the warm setting (120°F). You'll not only save energy, you'll avoid scalding your hands.
  3. Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning. Keeping the damper open is like keeping a window wide open during the winter; it allows warm air to go right up the chimney.
  4. Schedule service for your heating system. Clean or change air filters regularly.
  5. Add caulk or weather-stripping to seal air leaks around leaky doors and windows.
  6. Open curtains on your south-facing windows during the day to allow sunlight to naturally heat your home, and close them at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.
  7. Turn lights off when you leave the room.
  8. Take short showers instead of baths and use low-flow showerheads.
  9. Only run full loads of clothes or dishes.
  10. Set your heater to 68°F on cold days.
