Additional Tips

  • Try a programmable or smart thermostat to save up to $100 annually. Set it to automatically adjust when you’re asleep or away so that it runs less often.
  • Have your HVAC equipment checked by a professional every year.
  • Replace incandescent bulbs with LEDs—these bulbs radiate 75% less heat and last up to five times as long.
  • Seal air leaks with caulking and weather stripping. It's one of the most cost-effective ways to save on heating.
  • Air dry dishes instead of using the dishwasher's drying heater.
  • Wash your clothes in cold or warm water to cut energy usage per load in half. Try hanging washed clothes outdoors or lay flat to dry inside.
  • Keep your fridge temperature between 35-38° and your freezer at 5°.
  • Grill more. Cooking outdoors means your stove and oven can sit one out.
