Fall Energy Saving Tips for Your Home

Autumn is a great time to reset your home and transition to cooler weather. Whether the kids are getting settled back to school routines or you're just feeling the seasonal pull towards a fresh start.

  1. Seal up air leaks - Check windows and doors for gaps or cracks, and repair them.
  2. Check the outside of your house - Clean gutters and downspouts to prevent ice buildup. Change light-bulbs and clean debris away from the house.
  3. Turn off unneeded devices - Unplug electronics when you're not using them. Close curtains and blinds when you leave for the day.
  4. Use energy-efficient appliances - Wash clothes in cold water. Dry them on low heat, at night or outside to avoid heating up temps in the house.
  5. Change your thermostat settings - Turn up the thermostat when you leave for the day, and down when you're asleep.
  6. Install a programmable thermostat - This will automatically adjust your thermostat settings based on your schedule.
  7. Check your furnace filter and batteries - A dirty filter can reduce your furnace's efficiency. Make sure your smoke detectors have fresh batteries.
  8. Save water - Take shorter showers. Fix leaks around the house. Use a water-efficient shower-head.
  9. Be prepared - Set up a grab-and-go station with reusable water bottles and other on-the-go essentials
