Energy Saving Resources

Electronics

Plug your TV, computers, and video games into a smart power strip.

Unplug

Unplug — Check around the house to see if devices are unnecessarily plugged in. Electronics and appliances are still drawing power even when they are off.

Insulation

Insulate your attic — Attics can be great sources of heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Payback will vary depending on your region, but you’ll usually recover the cost within 2 years.

Weatherization

Weatherizing your home means sealing where air can infiltrate, such as doors, windowns, and places where pipes enter the home.

Save Water

Install high-efficiency showerheads

Windows

Replace single-pane windows — Upgrading to more energy efficient windows can help control temperature and air infiltration in your home.

Thermostats

Programmable thermostats adjust the temperature in winter and in summer as well as during unoccupied hours.

Reduce Demand

Delay the dishwasher to run at midnight outside of peak hours

Save Electricity

Let the sunlight in to warm your home without using electricity

Save Energy

Set water heater to 120 degrees

Lighting

Replace incandescent and CFL lighting with LEDs

Laundry

Wash full loads in cold water

HVAC System

Maintain Your HVAC System —
Your heating and cooling system equipment runs best when properly maintained. Change your filters on a regular basis. Having your HVAC system serviced on an annual basis will ensure that your system is not costing you more than it should, as well as increasing the life of the system.
