SIX WAYS TO SAVE ENERGY

Temperatures are on the rise in the Motherlode. Here’s some info from (Woman’s Day). and YES, I read Woman’s Day. :) – Justin

  1. Set your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night.
  2. Keep lamps and TVs away from air-conditioning thermostats. The heat produced can cause the air conditioner to run longer.
  3. Reduce trips to the refrigerator. Each time the door is opened, up to 30% of the cold air can escape.
  4. Take a look at your furniture arrangement. Make sure vents and radiators aren’t blocked by sofas, chairs or other items.
  5. Remove lint from the dryer filter. A dirty one can increase energy use by up to 30%.
  6. Give your home an energy audit. Go to Home Energy Saver http://hes.lbl.gov/ to calculate your home’s energy use by zip code and find out the best ways for you to save energy.
