Easy Ways to Save Energy This Summer

Are you concerned with the amount of energy that you’re expending? You should be! Here’s the truth: when you save energy, you not only save money…you help save the environment as well, due to reducing the need for fossil fuels and coal. Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to save energy, no matter the season. Here are some easy ways to save energy this summer!

  • Check your dishwasher. Make sure that your dishwasher is completely full when you run it! Also, opt to use the energy saving setting. This is one of the most common energy-burning things that we as homeowners do. Keep in mind, too, that you can save 20 percent of your dishwasher’s total electricity by turning off the drying cycle manually.
  • Turn your fridge’s temperature down. Did you know that refrigerators account for nearly 20 percent of our total electricity use? Why not turn down the temp? Also, check to make sure that the gaskets around your fridge doors are pulled as tightly as possible.
  • Turn down your water heater thermostat. Each ten-degree reduction saves 600 pounds of CO2 per year – whoa! Turn down your water heater thermostat and get ready to reap the benefits.
  • Turn off the lights. Every little bit helps! When you leave a room, always be sure to turn off the lights.
