Energy Tips

Below please find some key energy saving tips that can save you money on your energy bill.

Clean or Replace Air Filters

Every 30 to 60 days during the heating season, clean or replace the filters in your heating system.

Heat Vents

Do not place furniture in front of vents. Warm air coming out of the vents should have a free and unobstructed path.

Lower the Thermostat

Lowering your thermostat 7° to 10° for 8 hours per day can save you as much as 10% on your energy usage. Installing programmable thermostats in your home can automate this process for you.

Dress for Comfort

Wear sweaters and layers of clothing in cold weather. Use extra blankets if necessary.

Energy Efficient Windows

Installing energy efficient windows can save on your monthly energy consumption.

Weatherstrip and Caulk

Apply weatherstripping around doors and windows.

Use caulk to plug leaks around window and door frames, in foundation cracks, and where siding meets the chimney, foundation and roof.

Fireplaces

Don't build a fire when the furnace is on. A roaring blaze can actually waste energy by drawing heated air up the chimney. If you do use the fireplace, turn the thermostat down. Close the chimney damper after the ashes are cold.

Ventilation Fans

Don't keep ventilation fans running in the bath or kitchen, these fans vent valuable heated or cooled air.
