Ways to save Energy & Money

 Always turning lights off when not in use: lights, TVís, computers will cut down on energy costs

 Washing clothes mostly in cold water wash rather than hot water will help

 Dress appropriately for the weather

 Set your thermostat to the lowest possible comfortable setting. On winter nights put an extra blanket on the bed.

 In summer, use fans.

 Keep the A/C filter clean help the unit run more efficiently

 Check and maintain seal and weather-strip windows and doors to ensure that you are not wasting heat or air that escapes though leaks to the outdoors.

 Lower your hot water thermostat 10 degrees, but no lower than 120 degrees. You'll still get all the hot water you need and save 25 kilowatt hours a month.

 By using heavier drapes and curtains in the winter will help prevent heat from escaping, or in the summer, keep the cool air from an air conditioner inside

 Weatherize your home or apartment, using caulk and weather stripping to plug air leaks around doors and windows. Caulking costs less than $1 per window, and weather stripping is under $10 per door. These steps can save up to 1100 pounds of CO2 per year for a typical home

 When cooking, keep the lids on pots. When possible use the microwave oven instead.

 Replace incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescent bulbs ( aka CF Bulbs) which lasts 10,000 hours as compared to only 750 hours for incandescent bulbs save not only energy, but the cost of bulb replacement.

 Buy major appliances that sport the "Energy Star" sticker. That shows the appliance meets or exceeds standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

 Check the ductwork to seal all exposed ductwork joins. Insulate ducts to improve your heating systems efficiency and your own comfort.

 Get a home energy audit every couple of years to find ways to cut costs

 To save heating water, take five minutes showers instead of baths

 Install the A/C unit on the shady side of the house

 Change your old A/C unit for an energy efficient unit, look for a SEER of 13 or higher on central systems and the Energy Star Label in all appliances.

 Check the Insulation and add minimum R-19 more energy-efficient insulation to your attic, with the appropriate R-value, or resistance to heat flow, for your climate and the type of heating in your house.( Foam insulation is the ultimate technology used).

 Add Insulation on walls.†

 Modernize your windows. Replacing all your ordinary windows with argon filled, double-glazed windows saves energy.

 Install Zone system at home, It helps to manage the air distribution in house increasing efficiency and humidity level on your air condition and heating system††

 Installing ERV helps to exchange the air properly maintaining the air fresh or warm without lose energy.

 When building a home or replacing a roof, select a roof based more on energy efficiency than on how it looks. Light-colored roofs, such as white, galvanized metal or cement tile, do the best job of reflecting the sun, and cool quickly at night.
