Energy Saving Tricks

Photo credit:

Every month we receive a magazine from our power company and one month the magazine had a brochure 101 Low-Cost/No-Cost Home Energy-Saving Measure. I have read through brochure in no time and kept it in my money saving binder for later use. I will split the serious in several sections and each will share the tricks from the booklet to help you save money.
• Close shades and drapes at night to keep heat in during the winter

• Make sure drapes and shares are open to catch free solar heat in the winter

• Close shades and drapes during the day to help keep heat out during summer

• Ensure attic access door closes tightly

• Insulate attic access door

• Make sure insulation in your attic does not block soffit vents

• Do not close off unused rooms that are conditioned by forced air systems

• Do not close supply air registers

• Ensure return air grilles are not blocked by furniture or bookcase

• Ensure windows and doors are properly weather-stripped

• Make sure outside soffit vents are not blocked

• Do not use roof-top power ventilators for attic exhaust as they may evacuate conditioned air from your home
