Easy Ways to Save Energy in the Summer

6/6/2022 by qrelihan

Easy adjustments to make at home & the office:

  • Use windows to keep out heat by installing curtains or blinds
  • Turn fans off when you leave the room, because fans cool people not rooms
  • Remember that setting your thermostat lower does not make your house cool faster
  • Utilize daylight instead of turning on lights
  • Only run the dishwasher and laundry machines for full loads
  • Seal any cracks or gaps in doors and windows to keep warm air out
  • Air conditioning units use more energy to cool a space when lamps or other electronics are placed near it giving off heat

Activities & habits to put to practice:

  • Replace air filters and clean them to ensure they work properly
  • Choose LED light bulbs since they give off less heat than other light bulbs
  • Avoid using the oven on hotter days, as it only adds to heat in the house
  • All electronics give off heat while plugged in even if they are not being used or are fully charged, so if you are not using it unplug it
