Let the Fresh Air In = 5 Useful Energy Saving Tips.
To jumpstart your new and improved green lifestyle, consider starting from home. Going green is not only earth-friendly but can significantly save you a lot of money in the long-term as well. Here are the top five ways for saving energy at the comforts of your home:
Stay cool or warm the eco-friendly way
Avoid using air conditioners. Open the windows, switch on the fan and reduce the use of heat-inducing appliances in the house. In the spring months we recommend screens that will optimize air-flow and keep your energy bill in check.
Air dry your laundry instead of using the dryer
This is a very cost-effective and energy-saving method. A nonprofit organization called the Project Laundry List states that the usage of the dryer results in at least 6 percent of each household’s electric bills. Sunlight has natural bleaching and natural disinfecting properties that get rid of stains and kill germs.
Turn off the lights if you are not using them
Get the household involved by encouraging children and family members to switch off the lights if they are not using them. Open up the drapes & blinds and make use of natural light.
Switch to compact fluorescent and LED lights
By switching to compact florescent lights, you expand the life of your light bulbs and reduce energy usage. CFLs last up to 10 times longer and use less electricity.
Use Laptops or Mobile Devices at Home
Three quarters of energy is cut down with laptop use. Unplug the laptop when the day ends. You can even invest in smart power strips that cut off the flow of energy when appliances hooked to it are not in use.
