Efficient Appliances

No-cost tips

  • Save heavy housework such as washing dishes, using the oven and doing laundry for cooler parts of the day.
  • Close curtains, shades and blinds to hold down the temperature inside your home.
  • Be sure your fireplace damper is tightly closed to prevent air loss.

Low-cost tips

  • Clean or change the air filters in your air conditioning unit. Dirty filters cause the equipment to work harder, using up to 5 percent more energy than a clean filter.
  • Use fans to circulate the air. The breeze makes the air feel cooler than it is. Fans only cost $1-2 a month to operate.
  • Properly ventilate your attic to prevent excess heat build-up, which causes your cooling system to work harder.
  • Upgrade or install insulation to reduce cooling costs by as much as 20 percent.
  • Replace old weatherstripping around doors and windows to prevent leaks.
