  • 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.


  • 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.
  • Check your windows and exterior doors for drafts. If warm air is escaping, contact an expert window and doors contractor for consultation.
  • Have your central heating and cooling duct system tested for leaks regularly.
  • 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.


  • Limit your shower time to 5-10 minutes to help reduce water heating costs.
  • Unplug appliances that you aren’t using.
  • Use cold water when running the washer to reduce water heating usage.
  • Clean the lint trap in your dryer before running a load.
  • Reduce water usage while brushing teeth, shaving, or doing dishes.
  • Self-clean your oven immediately after you use it.
  • Keep your oven closed while cooking so that you don’t lose heat during operation.
  • To save energy, only run your dishwasher when it is fully loaded to save energy. Try letting dishes air dry instead of using the dishwasher’s dry cycle.
  • Install energy-saving windows, doors, light bulbs, showerheads, faucets, and flow restrictors.
