Family rooms are full of electronic devices--such as gaming consoles and DVD players--that continue to use energy in standby mode even when they are turned off. Cluster these devices on a power strip to conveniently cut off power at one time.
Keep your oven door closed when baking. Every time you open the oven door, the temperature can drop 25 degrees.
For oven cooking, use the lowest temperature setting possible and preheat the oven to the exact temperature required.
When cooking on range tops, cover pots and pants; foods will cook more efficiently and the kitchen will stay cooler in the summer.
Limit showers to 10 minutes or less; this is a highly effective, no-cost way to save energy and water.
