TIPS
1
WAYS TO
SAVE
TO SAVE ENERGY
OPEN SHADES IN WINTER,
CLOSE SHADES IN SUMMER
Sunlight passing through windows heats your home.
That’s great on winter days, but makes your air conditioner
work harder in the summer.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMS
TURN OFF LIGHTS
Help cut electricity costs by turning off
lights when they’re not needed, and make it a
habit every time you leave a room. To help you
remember, try leaving eye-catching reminders
next to light switches and doorways.
3
ADJUST THERMOSTAT
A FEW DEGREES
Heating and cooling can account for more than half of
your home’s energy use. When you are away from home or
sleeping, adjust your temperature by 10°F to save energy.
4
UTILIZE POWER STRIPS
Many computers, televisions, and other
“vampire” devices use power even when they’re off.
Plug these devices into an easy-to-reach power strip
and turn it off when you’re not using them.
5
REBATES AND
SAVINGS
REDUCE WATER HEATER
TEMPERATURE Water heating
accounts for up to 20 percent of a typical home’s energy
use. Lowering your water heater’s temperature from
140°F to 120°F can result in a 10 percent savings on
water heating costs and help prevent scalding.
