During these days of rising energy costs and concern for the environment, energy saving technologies are beginning to take hold. It is important to gain as much understanding of energy conservation as possible. Please view the following list of Energy Saving Tips and follow the links provided to access more information

Making your home Energy Efficient
  • Turn off lights, appliances, radios and TVs when not in use.
  • Replace regular incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient fluorescent lamps. Using only 25% of power as compared to conventional bulbs and having a life span up to 10 times longer, they save energy and money despite the higher cost to purchase. The use of fluorescent lamps is not recommended in places of very high humidity like bathrooms.
  • When using regular incandescent light bulbs, use light dimmers to control the use of power as needed. Light dimmers should not be used with energy efficient fluorescent lamps unless specified on the package as safe to do so.
  • Use “task lighting” to service specific areas of a room rather than lighting the whole room.
  • During the summer months, the use of a ceiling fan rather than an air conditioner saves tremendous energy.
  • To keep heat in during the winter months and to block out heat during summer months, use curtains and shades on your windows.
  • Keep your computer and printer turned off when not in use. Even when idle they use much more power than most people realize.
  • Use small appliances such as microwave oven rather than a regular electric oven/stove and an electric kettle rather than a stove top one as they use much less energy.
  • Keep your refrigerator between 36 to 42o F and the freezer at 0o F.
  • Do one electricity audit of your home during the coldest winter month and one during the hottest summer month.
