Energy Saving Tips

Energy Saving Tips to help reduce energy costs

Motion-Detector Switches : We often find ourself forgetting to turn off lighting fixtures when exiting a room. Installing motion-detector switches are a quick and easy way to ensure lighting fixtures only operate when motion is detected within its area. Estimated Energy Savings of up to 2% can be expected

Install Ceiling Fans / Portable Fans : By installing Energy Star rated ceiling fans or portable cooling devices, you will reduce power consumption from your AC. Hundreds of varietys are available to best suit your application and many manufacturers offer models controlled by remotes with automated programming to turn on at certain temperatures. In colder seasons, be sure to set your ceiling fans to turn clockwise which will help circulate the warm air from the ceiling back down into the room. Estimated Energy Savings of up to 19% can be expected

Refrigerator Maintenance : Your refrigerator is one of the biggest consumers of energy if it was built prior to 1993. Not everyone can afford purchasing a newer refrigerator to a Energy Star rated one. Clean the coils on your fridge every 5-6 months to help keep it running efficiently. Unused space inside a refrigerator can actually create more work on your unit, place water bottles or jugs inside your refrigerator to reduce the unused space will actually help lower the workload on your unit and help contain the cold temperature more effictively. Estimated Energy Savings of up to 4% can be expected

Use a Programmable Thermostat : Nearly half of all US homes already have a programmable thermostat. Learn how to utilize yours to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling devices. Simple adjustments can be programmed to help turn down or off during certain times of the day such as while away at work, on vacation, or even at night while sleeping. Estimated Energy Savings of up to 10% can be expected

Energy Efficient Bulbs : Standard Incandescent lamps / bulbs are power hungry and are in almost every US home already. One of the simplest ways to reduce energy consumption is to replace older style lamps / bulbs with more energy efficient ones. Lack of knowledge about lighting is one of the leading reasons why consumers continue to pay high electric bills monthly. Think about every lamp / bulb you may use and look at the wattage used by each one. The higher the wattage, the more heat the bulb will create and the more your cooling devices will have to work. Energy Star rated lamps / bulbs such as Compact Fluorescent Lamps or LED bulbs will not only reduce energy consumption, but also reduce the heat output that standard incandescent bulbs produce. Estimated Energy Savings of up to 67 % can be expected
