The less energy you use up, the less you have to pay when that bill comes around. Here are a few simple tips to save on energy and money.

Ceiling Fans

Use your ceiling fans often and properly. The direction they rotate does make a difference. In the summer, set them counter-clockwise to pull up the hot air and push down the cool. Set them the opposite way in the winter to push down the hot air and pull out the cool.

Appliances

If turned off but still plugged in, your appliances are still taking up energy. Although it is significantly less, it still builds up. Plug all of your appliances into a surge suppressor to turn them all off or just unplug them when you’re done.

Change Filters

Check the filters on your furnace every month, or at least every quarter, to be sure that the dust and lint build up is not preventing it from being effective.

Close Doors

Energy can be wasted when doors are left open. Refrigerators and freezers have to work harder in order to keep their contents cold. Homes have to work longer to maintain a temperature that the outside is competing with. Even windows without curtains covering them can bring in more cool air that will make the furnace have to work harder.

It doesn’t take much time and it doesn’t cost any money to make sure that your home is energy-friendly and cost-efficient. The less energy you use in your home, the less money you will have to pay.
