Summer is quickly approaching which inevitably means an increase in energy usage. Here are a few helpful energy and money saving tips from Energy Upgrade California that you can share with your Board, tenants and homeowners.
Switch to Energy Star certified LED bulbs throughout your home for long-lasting savings. For an even bigger boost in savings, get your entire household in the habit of turning off lights when they leave a room. It will add up!
Do you have electronics that are plugged in throughout the day but not in use? Power strips make it easy to turn off several at once and also help with “vampire energy”. This is energy your electronics consume even when turned off.
Did you know that showering accounts for almost 17% of a homes water usage? Install a low-flow showerhead, cut back to 10 minute showers, only run your dishwasher when 100% full and turn off the water when brushing your teeth. All of these simple steps can lead to significant savings over the course of a year.
Did you know that cold water gets your clothes just as clean as hot water and uses less energy? (Don’t worry, we didn’t either!) Heating the hot water for laundry accounts for 90% of the energy your machine uses.
Help your air conditioner run efficiently by changing the filter once per month in the summer. The harder it has to work, the higher the bill.
