Spring Energy Saving Tips
These simple tips can help you save energy this spring.
Bring in sunlight. During daylight hours, switch off artificial lights and use windows and skylights to brighten your home.
Set the thermostat. On warm days, setting a programmable thermostat to a lower setting when you are not at home can help reduce your energy costs by approximately 10 percent.
Seal ducts. Air loss through ducts can lead to high electricity costs, accounting for nearly 30 percent of a cooling system’s energy consumption. Sealing and insulating ducts can go a long way toward lowering your electricity bill.
