Energy Tips
Attic

Install rafter and soffit vents to maintain a steady airflow, removing heat from the attic and keeping your home cooler in the summer. In winter, proper ventilation and insulation helps keep the attic cold, reducing the potential for melting and refreezing that can cause harmful ice dams on the roof and gutters.



Weather strip
Weather-strip around the seams of your air conditioner to provide better insulation, and reduce cooling costs.

Refrigerators

  • Consider skipping the ice-maker and dispenser. Automatic ice-makers and through-the-door dispensers increase energy use by 14-20 percent. They also raise the purchase price by $75 to $250.

  • If you buy a new refrigerator, be sure to recycle your old one. Replacing a fridge from the 1980s with an ENERGY STAR model can save $100 per year on your utility bill. Replacing a 1970s model can save up to $200 per year!

  • Consider buying a refrigerator with a top-mounted freezer. Models with top-mounted freezers use 10 to 25 percent less energy than bottom-mount or side-by-side models.

  • Purchase an appropriately sized refrigerator. Generally, the larger the refrigerator, the greater the energy consumption. The most energy-efficient models are typically 16-20 cubic feet.
