Energy Conservation 101

Ways to conserve energy.-Avoid energy vampires. Even when they’re turned off, home electronics in “standby” mode use energy to power features like clock displays. -Look for ENERGY STAR-qualified TVs , they’re up to 30 percent more efficient than noncertified models.-Consider a laptop next time you're looking to buy a computer – they use less energy than desktop computers.-Set your computer to sleep or hibernate mode instead of using a screen saver so it uses less electricity during periods of inactivity.-Cover all bare floors. Carpeting or rugs add to comfort and heat retention, especially if there is little or no floor insulation. -Raise the temperature slowly to keep your bill lower. Quickly raising your heat pump's temperature activates the heat strip, which uses tons of energy. -Switch your ceiling fan to turn in a counter-clockwise direction In the summer; in the winter, run it at low speed, but clockwise.-Open interior doors so that cooled air flows freely throughout your home.
