Follow these easy money saving tips.

ENERGY STAR (www.energystar.gov) provides these tips for saving money and energy:

  1. Caulk, seal, and weather-strip around doors and windows to reduce air leaks.
  2. Turn off bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans when they’re not in use. These fans don’t just remove cooking odors and moisture; they also remove air-conditioned or heated air from your home.
  3. Change your furnace air filter regularly.
  4. Tune up your HVAC equipment annually.
  5. If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, consider installing ENERGY STAR qualified heating and cooling equipment.
  6. Check your refrigerator’s seals. If they’re not airtight, you may need to have them adjusted.
  7. When upgrading your air conditioning system or heating system, choose a two-stage model. A two-stage model’s low setting provides adequate cooling or heating for your home 80% of the time. The higher setting runs longer when needed to produce more even temperatures.
  8. Replace standard incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs, or LED bulbs. These bulbs not only cost less to run but produce less heat for your air conditioner to remove. Turn off any lights not in use.
  9. Use your dishwasher and laundry appliances for full loads only.
  10. During the cooling season prepare meals on your outdoor grill to avoid building up excess heat caused by stoves and ovens.
