1. Let the Sun Shine In during the winter. Open window coverings during the day to let in the warmth of the sun, and close them at night.
Keep the Sun Shine out during the summer. Close window coverings during the day to keep the warmth of the sun out and lower your cooling bill.
2. Install a programmable thermostat compatible with your heating and cooling system. These new programmable thermostats are proven to lower energy cost when in comparison to the older ones that use mercury. Make sure to set it comfortably low in the winter and comfortably high in the summer.
3. Try Compact Fluorescent bulbs to light up your home. Not only do these bulbs use much less energy, but they last a lot longer than regular bulbs. The upfront cost is a little higher, but they pay for themselves in energy savings.
These are just a few energy saving tips from http://www.greatest-money-saving-tips.co..., ,
Ok guys, lets keep this rolling. Help and be helped, I always say.
