These simple steps don't cost a thing, but can potentially save you 10-25% on your monthly energy bill.

  • Keep the thermostat at 78-80 degrees when people are in your house.
  • Turn down the water heater to 120 degrees.
  • Make sure outdoor lighting is turned off during the day.
  • Do not utilize screen savers--they prevent CPUs and monitors from going into power-saver mode.
  • Make sure equipment is turned off overnight and weekends. Use the energy saving feature on printers, monitors, copiers, and computers if the option is available.
  • Make double-sided copies whenever possible.
  • Make sure that bulbs, fixtures, lenses, lamps and reflective surfaces are cleaned regularly. By removing grease, dust and dirt, you can increase the output of your lights.

There are plenty of low cost, easy to do projects or steps you can do to save another 10-25% on your energy bill.

  • Repair any leaky faucets promptly.
  • Plant trees on south and west sides of your home.
  • Use ceiling fans to keep the air moving--they can make it feel at least four degrees cooler
  • Install low-flow showerheads.
  • Faucet aerators should be installed in restrooms.
  • Install low-water-use dishwashers (Energy Star Rated).
  • Make sure doors to the outside have enough weather stripping.
  • Caulk windows.
  • Use drapes, shutters, or window film to prevent heat loss and heat gain.
  • Change your furnace filters monthly.
  • Install a programmable thermostat.
  • Insulate water heaters and supply pipes.
