Easy energy-saving changes for the change of seasons
Things are quickly changing outside with shorter days and cooler temperatures. These tips will help you keep the dark and cold out – and your home cozy and warm – all while saving energy and money.
· Set your thermostat to 68 degrees and lower the temperature at night. Purchase a programmable thermostat – it can make these changes automatically.
· Clean or replace filters to help your furnace work more efficiently.
· Close drapes on drafty days to keep cold air out. On sunny days let the sun shine in.
· Have your heating system professionally serviced.
Windows & doors
· Catch those drafts around your windows and prevent heat loss with a simple weather stripping kit at your local hardware store.
· Switch out your screens on windows and doors with storm windows.
Less daylight means more indoor lighting use – which can account for up to 20 percent of your electricity bill.
· Consider changing to ENERGY STAR® qualified light bulbs. By replacing incandescent bulbs with qualified CFLs, you can use up to 75 percent less energy and save money over the life of each bulb.
· Add dimmer switches to lights in rooms that make sense, like dining rooms.
