Energy Trust Low-Cost and No-Cost Tips for Saving Money and Using Less Energy
- Install a smart thermostat so it can adjust the temperature automatically and help you save energy all year long.
- Use ceiling fans to push hot air down in winter and to keep air circulating so you feel cooler in summer. Use window fans to pull cool air in and draw warm air out, and consider an attic fan to provide powered ventilation.
- Plant trees to provide shade on the sunniest sides of your home—especially if you have windows that face west or south.
- Clean or replace filters regularly to help your furnace, heat pump and air conditioner work at peak efficiency.
- Cover bare floors with rugs to add comfort and help retain heat, especially if there is little or no floor insulation.
- Vacuum registers regularly and avoid blocking them with furniture and other objects to keep air flowing freely.
- Close windows and window coverings in hot weather during the day to keep hot air out. Open windows at night or early morning to let cool air in.
- Turn down the thermostat to 65-68 degrees during the day and 58-60 degrees at night during cooler months. If you have a heat pump, turn the thermostat down no more than three degrees at night. In warm weather, set your heat pump or air conditioning thermostat to 72-75 degrees.
- Heat your home in winter with help from the sun by leaving window shades or blinds open during the daytime; close window coverings at night to help keep the heat in.
