What are ways I can save energy and lower my utility bill?

If you want a nice list of ways you can save energy with specific measurements and amounts saved, contact your local power company and ask them for their energy saving tips or brochures. There are some simple things you can do to save energy and use or add to the resources in your home to do it. On really hot or cold days make sure the curtains or blinds are drawn when the worst cold or heat hits the side of the house those windows are on. Open up windows if it is hot inside to help ventilate the house .Close doors between rooms to keep the drafts down and allow each room to hold in the heat during cold times. Use a fan instead of the air conditioning and consider installing ceiling fans. If you can put an attic venting system in, you can pull the hot air out of the house at cooler parts of the day and pull the cooler air into the house in a short time. If you can’t afford all new energy efficient windows, improve the ones you have by recaulking cracked caulk and repairing broken or cracked windows and using more efficient window coverings like heavier fabrics for winter. To keep drafts out from under drafty doors, make tubes of stuffed fabric in a snake form, long enough to cover the base of each door and help to eliminate the drafts and keep either the heat in or the cooler air in. Set your thermostat a little higher in the summer and a little lower in the summer. Wear warmer clothes inside in the winter. One really simple thing is to make sure unused appliances and lights get turned off when they aren’t being used. These are just a few of many ways to save on your energy bill. You have to be aware and proactive in using everything efficiently to save money on your energy bill. Mama Nono
