Easy Ways To Conserve Energy


Saving $$$$

Are your hydro bills stretching your budget? Consider a few simple ways to lower your monthly costs.

1) Have you replaced your lightbulbs with energy efficient bulbs yet. You will be surprised at the difference it makes.

2) Be conscious of lights left on when you leave the room. Most of us just forget to flip the switch as we leave. It takes 30 days to form a habit and we have to persevere until it becomes second nature.

3) If you are not expecting company, turn the outside lights off and simply get a sensor light for unexpected guests.

4) Check the off peak times for hydro consumption and chose this time to run the washer, dryer and dishwasher.

5) Air conditioning costs are high this year given the extremely high temperatures we have had this summer. Consider having the thermostat on a timer or manually turn it up just a few degrees for the evenings.DO NO HOWEVER turn it off completely and let the house warm up too much.. What some people do not realize is that the unit will have to work twice as hard to cool down each room and everything in it such as the stuffing in the sofas, chairs and mattresses.
Every little bit helps! Let's all do our part.
