You Have The Power. Energy Efficiency Starts With You!

Heating and Cooling

Energy efficiency is in the air. Your heating and cooling system is the perfect place to start when making energysaving changes.

  • Install a programmable thermostat.
  • Set thermostats to 78 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and 68 degrees in winter.
  • Keep air vents open to increase circulation.
  • Use fans to cool your home.
  • Have your AlC and heating system serviced twice a year (during spring and fall).
  • On a new A/C unit, look for a 16 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER)and 12 Energy Efficiency Rating (EER)rating.
  • Clean or replace air filters once a month.

Appliances/Electronics

Get plugged in to an energy-efficient home with appliances and electronics that are designed to conserve.

  • Appliances and electronics can account for 20 percent of a home‘s electrical costs. Replace old appliances with ENERGYSTAR®-rated models.
  • Unplug electronics when they’re not in useCertain electronics, such as a cell phone charger, continue to draw electricity when left plugged in  even if they’re not in use.

Air Leaks

Controlling air flow helps control your savings. Properly sealing air leaks can significantly reduce your heating and cooling costs.

  • Caulk and seal air leaks where plumbing, ductingor electrical wiring comes through walls, floors and ceilings.
  • Install foam gaskets behind outlets and switch plates on exterior walls to stop air from leaking.
  • Consider foam sealant on larger gaps around windows and baseboards where air may leak out.

Doors and Windows

Close the door on air leaks for good. By focusing on two of the top spots for gaps in your home, you’ll be one step closer to an energy-efficient home.

  • Weatherstrip and caulk around windows and doors to prevent drafts. A gap of just one-quarter inch can let in as much air as a softball-size hole.
  • Consider ENERGYSTAR®-qualified window models and low E-Glass windows. Their special coating will reflect infrared light, keeping heat in during winter and out during summer.
  • A low-cost alternative to new windows is installing solar screens.

Insulation

With the proper insulation, you can keep your heating and cooling system from working overtime.

  • Insulating your attic can reduce your heating and cooling needs up to 30 percent.
  • The minimum recommendation for insulation amount in most attics is R34 to R-38, or about 10 to 17 inches, depending on the insulation type

Lighting

Conserve energy with the flip of a switch by choosing the correct lighting.

  • Install compact fluorescent light bulbs or LED (lighting emitting diodes). They use approximately 70 percent less energy than an incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer.
  • Use sunlight to illuminate your home. Its free!

Water

Shower yourself in savings by making small changes to your homes water system.

  • Fix leaking faucets. They can cost you 20 gallons of water a day.

  • Set your water heater temperature at 120 degrees Fahrenheit to save on water heating.

  • Insulate the hot water heater and your heating and cooling pipes that are not in enclosed areas. It can reduce heat loss by 25 to 40 percent.

Trees

Trees are a natural solution for energy-efficient changes. Remember: When planting a tree, type and location are key.

  • Proper tree placement can reduce home heating ancooling costs by 20 percent. Plant trees 35 feet from your house and 25 feet from power lines.

  • Plant deciduous trees (trees that lose their leaves). They will shade your house in summer, and help warm your home in winter by letting light through.
