20 Energy Saving Tips for Your Home 

  1. Change your light bulbs to LEDs.
  2. If possible, wash your clothes in cold water.
  3. Sealing cracks, gaps, leaks, and adding insulation can save up to 10% on home heating and cooling costs.
  4. Clean or replace all filters in your home regularly. Dirty filters make your system work harder and run longer than necessary.
  5. During warmer months, close blinds, shades and drapes on the sunny side of your home to help keep your home's temperature cooler and reduce the work for you AC. Open shades during cooler months to let the sun warm your home.
  6. Don't peek in the oven while baking! Every time you peek, the temperature drops 25° F, making your oven use more energy to bring the temperature back up.
  7. Use natural light when possible.
  8. Don't leave your computer on all day long. Only turn on your computer, monitor, printer and fax machine when you need them.
  9. Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer and as low as possible in the winter. The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall heating and cooling bill will be.
  10. Using your ceiling fan will allow you to raise the thermostat setting about 4°F with no reduction in comfort.
  11. Refrigerators and freezers actually operate most efficiently when full, so keep your refrigerator and freezer as full as possible. Be careful about overfilling them as this will reduce airflow and cause the appliance to work harder.
  12. Avoid using dishwashers and washers/dryers between 4 PM and 6 PM to reduce strain on the power grid during the peak usage hours. 
  13. Turn off heated dry on your dishwasher and air dry instead.
  14. Set your refrigerator temperature to the manufacturer's recommendation to avoid excessive cooling and wasting energy.
  15. Don't leave bathroom or kitchen ventilation fans running longer than necessary. They replace inside air with outside air.
  16. Check those windows!  It may be time for an upgrade. 
  17. Install a programmable thermostat that will automatically adjust the temperature according to your schedule.
  18. Turn off the lights when they're not in use. Lighting accounts for about 12% of a typical residential utility bill.
  19. Don't leave your mobile phone plugged in overnight. It only takes a couple of hours to charge. 
  20. Avoid placing appliances that give off heat, such as lamps or TVs, near a thermostat.

Ten Easy Ways You Can Reduce Your Indoor Humidity
Ten Easy Ways You Can Reduce Your Indoor Humidity

“It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.” This cliché sums up a major problem with high humidity: excessive moisture in the air makes you feel hotter than hot. You’re sticky, sweaty, and all-around miserable. 

When there’s high humidity inside, it’s even worse. High indoor humidity is super-uncomfortable because there’s no escape. Beyond simple discomfort, excessive moisture can make you sick with allergies or breathing problems. It may also harm your house, in the form of mold, rot, and structural damage.
