  • Energy Saving Tip #436

    End water (heating) torture.

    Leaky faucets can draw hot water, which you’re paying to heat. Fix dripping faucets as soon as you can.

  • Energy Saving Tip #190

    Charge, pull, repeat.

    There is no 110% battery power, so save energy by pulling the plug on chargers as soon as your devices hit 100%.

  • Energy Saving Tip #433

    Dive into the laundry deep end.

    When you dry loads back to back, your dryer stays warmer and you save on the energy it otherwise would draw to heat up from room temperature. If you have the time, a clothesline dries without drawing a kilowatt.

  • Energy Saving Tip #233

    A full freezer doesn’t just mean dinner’s at hand.

    The more space in your fridge or freezer, the more air you’re paying to cool. A well-stocked unit holds the cold better than an empty one.

  • Energy Saving Tip #420

    Clean coils mean efficient fridges.

    Do dust bunnies collect behind your refrigerator? Clean those coils to help your fridge function better.

  • Energy Saving Tip #464

    Leaf no savings opportunities behind.

    Planting trees on the side of your home that gets the most sun helps keep your house cool by blocking the hot, hot rays. Just be sure to watch out for power lines!

  • Energy Saving Tip #249

    Institute an open-door policy.

    Keep exterior doors shut, but leaving inside doors open helps air flow more freely and your air conditioner work more efficiently.

  • Energy Saving Tip #379

    Turn back—for savings to come.

    Ceiling fans make your air conditioner’s work easier when they spin counter-clockwise. Make sure yours are moving in the, ahem, right direction before temps go up.

  • Energy Saving Tip #388

    Is your oven lying to you?

    Very few ovens run true to the temperature on the dial. The small cost of an oven thermometer could save you lots of money and energy—and dry pot roasts. 

  • Energy Saving Tip #150

    Where there’s lint, there may be fire.

    A blocked dryer vent is a fire hazard at worst and an energy suck at best. Keep your vent clear to keep your dryer working efficiently.
