laundry

Run your clothes or dishwasher only when full. Also, be sure to clean the dryer lint filter after every load.

Why?
It takes the same amount of energy to run a small load versus a full one. Also cleaning the lint filter will help your clothes dry faster, yielding less energy usage.

water_heater

Turn down your water heater to the warm setting.

Why?
During the fall season, the air temperature cools down the water that enters your hot water heater, making it work harder to warm the water to your optimal temperature. Therefore, lowering the setting even by a few degrees can save you money in th elong run. Even better, there is up to a $500 rebate when you upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® heat pump water heater.

Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use.

Why?
Many electronics and appliances can still use power when turned off. To combat these energy vampires, reduce your consumption by unplugging electronics when not in use. An easy way is to use a power strip that you can switch off when necessary. LEARN MORE >
