Want to save some money? Sure you do! Do some or all of these hot tips to help save on your energy costs for your home.
- Use your fans! You read that correctly, TURN THEM ON. It will help to circulate the air and keep it at a steady degree temperature-wise. And if you have the reversible blade kind make sure they are turned the right way! Summer months = counter clockwise. Winter = clockwise.
- Don’t be afraid to run your dishwasher. You’ll actually save on water and energy by NOT hand washing your dishes and letting your fancy machine do what it does best: CLEAN YOUR DISHES EFFICIENTLY.
- At night when leaving a room, turn off your lights!
- Wash your clothes in cold water instead of hot. And while we are on the washing clothes subject, if it’s a nice day outside, hang dry your clothes. Don’t like the way it makes your Sunday best look? Hang dry towels/socks/rags/sheets only then.
