Saving Energy this December
The weather has finally shifted and now it’s time to crank up your heat! But WAIT! If you’re planning on traveling this holiday season make sure you take some extra time to downgrade the energy use in your home. Being energy conscious while you’re away is incredibly easy and can help save you extra money on your bill!
Save energy now, here’s how:
- Lowering your thermostat can help save money and energy. It’s recommended that you lower your thermostat to 60 degrees, but it really is a preference. Bottom line is, why have the heat set at 72 degrees if you’re not around to need it?
- If you turn your water heater to a lower setting (Or vacation setting if available) you can save quite a bit of energy by avoiding running your heater as usual.
- If you’re concerned with the safety of your home on top of saving energy while you’re vacationing, try purchasing some light timers. Using timers on the inside and outside of your home can help ensure you’re not wasting energy by leaving a light on 24/7, but also can lead unwanted visitors to believe you’re still home.
