October is Energy Awareness Month.
Small steps at home can make a big difference in protecting our environment and saving energy.
A few tips, what we can do at home;
*Replacing all the bulbs with CFL bulbs.
*To turn down the thermostat on the hot water heater about 5 degrees.
*Unplugged all unnecessary appliances, lamps, etc.
*Buy a meter which monitors the appliances and energy usage in the house..a monitor actually computes how much you’re using an hour.
*Make your washer use warm/cold vs hot water.
*Solar hot water system
*Removing window screens allows about 25%(wowed me, when I found out) more light and more solar gain on south facing windows.
You'll be smiling when you receive next month’s electric bill and see how much you have saved:)
Save electricity is a good thing for all. How do you save electricity? Any other tips on saving energy? I would love to hear them.
Save and smile!!!!
