Energy Tips
Bedroom

Operate ceiling fans at night to reduce the need for air conditioning and heating. In summer, direct the fan to push air down. In winter, reverse fan direction to pull air up, forcing warm air down.



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.



Cooking
Use the smallest burner that fits your pot to help reduce the amount of energy used. And, use a lid to shorten the time on the burner when boiling water or heating food on the stove.
