Energy Saving Tips for Homeowners
1. Programmable Thermostats
A programmable thermostat can automatically operate your heating and cooling systems. When the residents leave the buildings during the days, the system can set itself back a few degrees. Then, in the evenings, the temperature will return to original levels.
2. Motion-Activated Outlet Adapters
Turning down the air conditioning in the summer by a few degrees can greatly lower your energy bill. Using a personal fan instead can save you money, but don't leave the fan on all night! Match up your fan with a sensor plug, so that the fan is on only when the room is occupied!
3. Equipment Efficiency
When was your furnace manufactured? How about your air-conditioner? Units manufactured before 1993 are less efficient than contemporary models, and therefore use more energy to produce the same amount of heating or cooling. Depending on your current model, you may be able to save up to 50% on your energy bills!
4. Take advantage of Energy Educational Programs
Many energy companies publish various tips to their customers or to consumers in general. For example, Alliant Energy of Wisconsin publishes a comprehensive 101 Energy Saving Tips. You can continue your search for ideas.
