Conserving energy

Conserving energy:

Turn down the thermostat, especially before going to bed. Programmable thermostats are available to do the job for you.
Seal and insulate. Up to 40 percent of a home's heat is lost through air leaks. By putting weather-stripping around doors, caulking windows and adding more insulation, you can limit the loss to a minimum.
Wrap heat ducts and hot water pipes with insulation. Protection against energy loss is especially important in unheated areas such as the attic or basement.
Blanket the water heater. Specially designed insulating blankets are available for your water heater.
Use energy-efficient lights. Compact fluorescent or other energy-efficient bulbs are more expensive than commonplace light bulbs, but they last much longer and cost considerable less to operate.
Buy and use appliances wisely. Read the accompanying EnergyGuide rating labels to determine what difference each appliance will make to your energy bill. Operate high-energy appliances, like washers and dryers, with full loads during off-peak hours for maximum energy economy.
Dry clothes on a clothesline or drying rack instead of using the electric dryer
