How to Save Energy
 

How to save energy in the summer .

   ·
Insulation is vitally important for summer cooling. Attics in some homes can reach 140 degrees F. An attic with 
      
fiberglass
batts or blown-in mineral wool could save up to 40% in energy costs in the operating of cooling equipment.
 
   ·
Keep windows and outside doors closed to keep the cool air inside the house.
 
   ·
Turn off unused lights: they produce heat which must be removed by the cooling system.

   ·
Clean or replace filters. Clogged filters cause the system to work harder and are less efficient. 

   ·
Attic fans cut cooling costs. An attic fan will reduce heat transmitted through the ceiling, thereby easing cooling   
  
      
requirements.
 
   ·
Draw drapes and curtains when it gets very hot, this will reduce the demands on the cooling system.
 
   ·
To keep your house cooler, shade window areas from direct sunlight. Use awnings or plans that shield windows.
 
   ·
Major appliances such as dishwashers and dryers should be used in the cooler times of day.
 
   ·
Set the thermostat to off position when away from the house for 24 hours or more.
 
   ·
Do not over cool. Maintain as high a temperature setting as comfort permits.

  ·
Set thermostat higher than normal, if you are to be away from your home for a substantial part of the day.
 
  ·
The size of your air-conditioning system is vitally important. An oversized system will turn on and off too often minimizing
  
      efficiency and an undersized unit will operate almost continuously decreasing the life of the equipment as well as failing to cool
      effectively.

  ·
Shield outdoor air-conditioning equipment from direct sunlight. However, be sure the air flow is not too restricted.

Home Energy Yardstick

If you have 5 minutes and your energy bills are handy, find out if your energy use is above average. You will need to enter some common information about your home such as age, square footage, number of occupants and energy bill totals for a consecutive 12-month period (one year). If you don't keep your bills, contact your utility provider.
 for a 12-month summary.
