Is Your Home Energy-Efficient?


ENERGY EFFICIENCY CHECKLIST:

 
  • Replace incandescent lightbulbs with compact fluorescent lamps.

  • Plug your electronics into a power strip, and turn that off when they're not in use.  

  • Keep cell phone chargers and other power converters unplugged when not in use. 

  • Install energy-efficient windows. 
     
  • Upgrade from an older analog thermostat to a digital, programmable thermostat. 

  • Heat your water with natural gas instead of electricity. 

  • Check your house for drafts and other indications of degraded insulation.   

     
  • Request a free energy audit from your utility company.  

  • Plant deciduous trees around your house, particularly towards the south and southwest.
