January 10 is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day!

National Cut Your Energy Costs Day encourages us to explore our options and keep up with scheduled maintenance. Did you know that tuning up your heating system can save you up to three to ten percent?

And when you cut your energy costs - you're also cutting your carbon footprint!

It is often in the little things that you do that can save you big money on your energy bill, such as:

  • Weatherproof your home

  • Replace old windows with new energy-efficient windows

  • Replace old furnace with new energy-efficient furnace

  • Properly maintain furnace

  • Use solar heat if possible

  • Turn down thermostats

  • Turning off lights when leaving a room

  • Use energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs

  • Run dishwasher and washing machine only when fully loaded

  • Lower water heater temperature

  • Take shorter showers

  • Unplug unused appliances

  • Carpool or take public transportation whenever possible

Here's why we especially like this last bullet: Switching your daily commute to public transportation increases your annual carbon savings more than adjusting your thermostat, using energy-efficient light bulbs, and installing an energy-efficient refrigerator — combined!

It's also something you can change right away. It's the way to go!
