Move furniture away from vents. Obstructing vents blocks heat, wastes energy and may even pose a fire hazard.
It's Easy to Save Energy.
We Can Help.
I will be an Energy Hero for California by doing at least one thing to save energy.
How to Save Energy
Check out these tips to see what action you can take this season or year-round.
Space to Vent
Cover the Floor
Rugs and carpeting aid with heat retention, and they’re more comfortable on bare feet.
Lower the Heat
Turn down the heat in winter. Switch the thermostat to 65°F and enjoy wearing your winter wardrobe indoors again.
Power to the Strip
Use an electric power strip for your electronic equipment. This will help reduce phantom loads—and save you up to $100 year. Don’t forget to turn the strip off when you’re not using it.
Slow the Flow
Reduce energy for water heating. It takes just a few simple steps—like lowering your water heater’s temperature and installing low-flow showerheads—to reduce your water heating bills.
Unplug the Charger
Unplug fully charged devices. Leaving charged smartphones and laptops plugged in wastes energy and can damage the battery.
