WARM WEATHER TIPS
As much as possible, use your stove or microwave instead of the oven to avoid heating up the house.
Keep your air vents clean to maximize ventilation of your home.
Set your thermostat to 75-78°F while you’re home. Set it to 85°F when you leave for long periods. This will not only decrease your carbon footprint, but will also save you money on your energy bill.
Wait until the evenings to cook and run your washer, dryer, or dishwasher to minimize the heat in your home.
Keep cool air inside by minimizing the use of bathroom and kitchen vent fans.
Try old-fashioned air-drying outdoors instead of using the dryer for your clothes.
Use natural light whenever possible to reduce electrical light usage.
Keep the area outside of your air conditioner clear of debris.
Open your windows during cooler times of the day (morning and night) to ventilate your home.
Keep clean air filters on your air conditioners to allow proper air flow.
Ensure your windows are in good condition so that cool air doesn’t escape.
Check your garage to ensure the gap between the bottom of the door and the threshold isn’t allowing cool air to escape and letting warm air in.
Using awnings to block sunlight and shield your windows from the heat.
COLD WEATHER TIPS
Turn your heater down if you are using your fireplace.
Close your curtains and blinds to prevent warm air from leaking out of your windows.
Set your furnace at 68°F or lower.
Set your thermostat to 56°F when you leave your house.
