10 WAYS TO SAVE ENERGY AT HOME

  1. Change or clean your AC’s air filters at least once a month to keep your system running at peak performance.
  2. Replace standard bulbs with CFLs. Compact fluorescent light bulbs are more energy-efficient than regular bulbs, while giving off the same amount of light.
  3. Use microwaves and toaster ovens to cook or warm leftovers. You’ll use less energy than cooking with a conventional oven.
  4. Dust your fridge the next time you dust your house. Check the coils behind the refrigerator — and use coil vacuums or dusters to clean it off and keep costs down.
  5. Use copper-bottomed pots and pans that use heat more efficiently when cooking on the stove.
  6. Always wash with cold water, laundry detergent works just as well, and you’ll save 40 cents per load.
  7. Reduce the strain on your AC by applying reflective coating. This will help you save by decreasing the amount of heat coming into your home.
  8. Set your refrigerator temperature between 30 and 42°F. Use the power-save switch if you have one.
  9. Turn off your oven or burners when food is almost ready and let existing heat finish the cooking for you.
  10. Match your pot size to the burner on your stove. Heat is lost when small pots are used on large burners.

These tips will help you save energy, ultimately reducing your expenses.
