Quick Tips to Trim Your Energy Bill


Energy costs continue to rise, but these simple home tips can help maximize your energy spending:

  • Turn off anything you’re not using – s, computer, television, radio, etc. Unplug appliances and electronics.
  • Swap out standard light bulbs for energy-efficient ones.
  • In anticipation of winter, weatherize your home. Use caulk or a weather strip to seal any door or window that leaks air.
  • Upgrade the insulation in your attic.
  • Use the dishwasher, washer and dryer only for a full load.

  • Encourage everyone in the house to take shorter showers.
  • Regularly change the filter on your air conditioner.
  • Repair leaky faucets immediately.
  • Keep the thermostat under 70 degrees in winter (and a few degrees cooler than the outside temperature in summer).
  • Turn the heat down (or the air conditioning up) when you’re at work during the day or gone for other long periods.
