Practicing energy conservation at home will help reduce your annual energy bills, improve comfort, and lower your carbon emissions. That is what we call a win-win-win!

Cold Weather Conservation Tips

  • Schedule your annual heating or water heater maintenance
  • Replace cracked or broken windows
  • Check weather stripping and caulking around doors and windows
  • Switch your ceiling fans to spin in a clockwise direction
  • Open your windows during the day to let the sun light in and naturally heat your home and close them at night to block the radiant cold from the windows
  • Upgrade old thermostats to programmable thermostats
  • Upgrade to new energy-efficient heating equipment

Warm Weather Conservation Tips

  • Upgrade inefficient window air conditioners with central air conditioning or heat pumps
  • Clean or change the air filter in your air conditioner periodically to improve efficiency and reduce energy costs
