Green Tip Monday

Looking for no- to low-cost ways to save energy during hot weather? Here are a few simple tips to help you reduce your energy use:

  • Set thermostats no lower than 78 degrees.
  • Use electric fans instead of air conditioning when practical.
  • Operate swimming pool equipment and energy-intensive appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers, during early morning and late evening hours.
  • Turn off unused appliances and switch off lights when leaving a room.
  • Close drapes and blinds to keep out direct sunlight during hot periods.
  • Limit the opening and reopening of refrigerators, which are major users of electricity in most homes.
