Tips for Energy Conservation

Top Five Easiest Things to do to Conserve Energy according to the National Wildlife Federation:

  • Change the filter in you furnace: Keep heating and cooling systems running efficiently.
  • Change to fluorescent or LED light bulbs: They use far less energy than incandescents.
  • Combine Trips: Plan your errands to reduce transportation time.
  • Lower the temperature on your water heater: You'll still have hot water, but it means the heater uses less energy when you are not using hot water.
  • Check your car's tire pressure: Poorly inflated tires wastes gas and causes more pollution.

To Five Decisions that will make the Biggest Difference:

  • Buy a fuel efficient vehicle: Include the fuel economy rating as part of the decision making process.
  • Buy Green Power.
  • Install a programmable thermostat: It takes about 10 minutes to install and allows you to save lots of energy costs when you are not home.
  • Buy less stuff: Everything we  buy creates waste and uses energy both in the manufacturing process and after we use it.
  • Stand up for what's right: Sign up to receive information from the National Wildlife Federation about global warming, and keep in touch with what's happening on this issue.
