Energy Conservation

How can I make a
Difference?

With my home?

- Unplug unused electrical products

- According to DOE, water heating is the third most energy consuming function in the home

- Shorten your showers

- Avoid using space heaters

- Turn off lights during daylight hours when it's not necessary, especially if you have AC (these lights create heat)

With Food?

- Vacuum the refrigerator coils

- Don’t leave the fridge door open

- Don't overload the fridge or freezer, the air needs room to circulate

With cooking?

- Use the oven’s self cleaning feature immediately after cooking with the oven, reduces warm up costs

- Use lids on pots and pans to reduce cooking times

With laundry?

- Wash only full loads of laundry

- Use hot water for only very dirty loads

- Run dryer loads immediately after one another to reduce warm up costs
