Electronics and other energy users make up 10% of the average home's energy usage

Other Energy Savers

Here are some other tips to help you keep cutting energy costs:

  • Keep the garage door closed, especially during the winter.
  • Unplug your iron when you have a little left to do – the residual heat will finish the job.
  • Bathroom fan vents do a great job of removing steam and moisture during a shower. They also do a great job of extracting heated and cooled air, which wastes energy. Be sure to turn off bathroom fans when not needed.
  • Use LED holiday lights. You can light a 6-foot tree 12 hours a day for 40 days with a cost of about only 27 cents compared to a cost of $10 for incandescent lights.
