Tri Cities and Beyond: December 2010

Energy Saving Tips for NOW

It's winter and saving money is always on our mind, along with staying warm!  Here are some simple steps to help you save a little energy and money around the house.

1. Caulk and weather strip around windows and doors to stop air leaks. ( I did this today- so easy!)

2. Seal gaps in floors and walls, as well as around pipes and electrical wiring.

3. Inspect ductwork and repair leaks.

4. Keep your outside air unit clear of debris or weeds.

5.  Change your air filters monthly! (Did that today too!)

6.  Replace incandescent bulbs with compact florescent.  They use 75 % less energy and last 10 times longer.

7.  Turn off lights, televisions and other appliances when not in use.

8.  Run dishwasher and clothes washer only when full.

9.  Make sure your outside vent is clear and clean the lint filter after every load.

10. Add insulation to crawlspace and attic.

11.  Last yet not least...... Close fireplace damper when not in use (except on December 24th)
