How to Save Energy
Check out these tips to see what action you can take this season or year-round.
Love Your Fans
Free the Filter
Replace dirty, clogged HVAC filters every one to two months during the summer to lower your energy use by 5% to 15%.
Maintain Your AC
Clean the evaporator coils and drain channels. Keep the area outside your unit free from overgrown foliage and inspect the seal between your unit and the frame to ensure no leaks.
Upgrade the Goods
Switch to energy-efficient appliances, fans and electronics. Using certified products throughout your home could save you nearly $750 over the lifetime of the product.
Turn the Lights Off
Simply flip the light switch off when no one is in a room, and you'll save energy. It's too easy.
Stock the Freezer
Keep your freezer full. An empty freezer uses more energy to stay cold. Pack your freezer with more food or even with gallon containers of water.
