Saving Energy

Energy saving tips for your home or business:

  • Install a programmable thermostat. Setting your home to a lower temperature at night and when you are away will save energy.
  • Check windows and doors for drafts and leaks. Caulking and weather-stripping around doors and windows will prevent heat loss
  • Keep windows closed when your heat is on
  • Replace old appliances with energy efficient appliances
  • Change furnace filters regularly to ensure maximum air flow
  • Open curtains and shades when the sun is shining and close them at night to reduce the chill from cold windows
  • Keep curtains and furniture away from heating vents
  • Vacuum, dust and remove pet hair from warm air registers and cold air returns
  • Ensure the dampers in your warm air registers are open
  • Regularly clean vents and chimneys
  • Perform regular maintenance on all gas appliances
