Home Energy Tips
Keep your House Cool on Hot Summer Days
Don't Heat your Home with Appliances and Lighting
On hot days, avoid using the oven; cook on the stove, use a microwave, or grill outside.
Install efficient lighting. Only about 10% to 15% of the electricity that incandescent lights consume results in light—the rest is turned into heat. Ask us about available rebates.
Take advantage of daylight instead of artificial lighting, but avoid direct sunlight. Strategies: efficient daylighting.
Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes. Consider air drying both dishes and clothing.
Minimize use of appliances that generate heat like computers or hair dyers and take short showers instead of baths.
