Here are just a few tips to get you started:

Cooling

Switch your ceiling fan to turn in a counter-clockwise direction in the summer; in the winter, run it at low speed, but clockwise.

Close your exterior doors and windows tightly when the AC is on. Save even more by turning off kitchen and bath exhaust fans.

Change or clean your AC’s air filters at least once a month to keep your system running at peak performance.

Set your thermostat fan switch to “auto” to save energy.

Block the sun from overheating your home. Inside, use shades, blinds and drapes. Outside, use awnings, trees and shrubs.

Open interior doors so that cooled air flows freely throughout your home.

Check for household leaks to make sure air isn’t escaping through openings such as fireplace dampers, doors and windows.

Decorate for a cooler home by hanging light-colored curtains that allow light to enter a room while blocking some of the sun’s rays, and light-colored paint to reflect heat.

Lighting

Replace standard bulbs with CFLs. Compact fluorescent light bulbs are more energy-efficient than regular bulbs, while giving off the same amount of light.

Replace halogen light bulbs, which can get hot enough to be a fire hazard, with CFLs – they use less energy and don’t get as hot.

Use motion-detector lights for all your outdoor lighting – they’re convenient and efficient.

Windows

Install high-performance windows, screens and films to protect upholstery, wood and artwork from UV rays while saving energy.

Consider high-performance windows before you replace your AC system. They’re so efficient that they may help reduce the size and cost needed for an AC system.

Install high-performance windows with double-glazing and spectrally selective coatings that reduce heat gain and avoid cranking up your AC.

With energy saving solutions you can start saving money little by little each month, which adds up over the year. If you want to speak to an expert here at K & M Electric Supply, Inc. feel free to give us a call. We are standing by waiting to hear from you, soon.
