Our Top 5 Energy Savings Tips
- Use cold water to wash clothes and hang clothes to dry when possible.
- In winter, keep curtains or drapes open during the day (to attract heat) and closed at night (to retain heat). In summer, do the opposite.
- LED light bulbs are 85% more energy efficient and last longer.
- Basements are responsible for 1/3 of a home’s heat loss. Make sure yours is properly insulated.
- Use a microwave or toaster oven when possible to use less energy than a stove or oven.
