Practicing energy conservation can reduce your annual energy bills and lower your carbon emissions. It’s a win-win!
When it comes to energy conservation, every little bit helps. Our energy experts at Hinds Energy were asked about their favorite energy conservation tips. Here is what they came up with!
Winter Conservation Tips:
- Naturally Heat Your Home: Open your curtains and shades during the day to allow sunlight to heat your home. And remember to close them at night to block the chill from cold windows.
- Switch Direction of Ceiling Fans: If you have ceiling fans in your home, switch them to spin in a clockwise direction. This will create an updraft and circulate warm air around the room.
- Seal Air Leaks: Check around your windows and doors for air leaks and replace cracked or broken weather stripping to reduce cold drafts.
- Maintain your Heating System: Make sure your heating equipment has been inspected and tested by the experts at Hinds Energy. This will help protect you against mid-winter breakdowns and improve your energy efficiency.
- Adjust the Temperature: Turning your thermostat back when you are away from home or sleeping can save you as much as 5% - 15% a year on your heating costs.
- Upgrade Outdated Equipment: Outdated heating systems are much more inefficient compared to the new energy-efficient equipment being made today. A new heating system will help reduce your annual energy bills and can improve your comfort!
