Energy Saving Tips
Laptops use 70% less energy than desktop computers
Anticipate when driving. Keeping a constant speed rather than over-breaking and accelerating can cut your gas consumption - and costs - by 30%.
There's little point in having an energy-efficient heating system if the walls, windows and attic of your home are poorly insulated.
Get rid of junk mail. Sign up on DMAchoice.org and remove yourself from pre-screened credit card offers, magazine and catalog offers and more.
When replacing appliances, only buy Energy Star rated products, choosing the products that offer the lowest water or power consumption possible.
Turn down the heating thermostat by 3 degrees to save 10% on your bills. I bet you know this... But do you do it?
Switch to energy saving lightbulbs. Add timers and motion sensors to save even more.
A ceiling fan on low cost about $7 a month to run constantly so turn them off when not in the room.
LED light bulbs last 25x as long as traditional incandescent bulbs. They also use only about 20-25% of the energy.
If you touch your hot water heater and it's warm you're wasting energy. Wrap a big doona around it for extra insulation!
