General

  • Energy Saving Tip #484

    To warm up, just add water.

    Humidity just feels warmer. Using a humidifier can enable you to turn back your thermostat without feeling the difference.

  • Energy Saving Tip #112

    Is your oven lying to you?

    Very few ovens run true to the temperature on the dial. The small cost of an oven thermometer could save you lots of money and energy—and dry pot roasts. 

  • Energy Saving Tip #374

    Your décor may be costing you.

    No matter how great that end table looks, if it’s blocking a vent, it’s gotta move. You make your system work harder when you keep air from flowing freely.

  • Energy Saving Tip #355

    Find the energy garlic to defang energy vampires.

    If it has a remote control, it uses power even when it isn’t on. Plug your television, DVD player, stereo, or anything else that might secretly suck energy into a power strip that you can turn off when you aren’t using that equipment.

  • Energy Saving Tip #155

    Duct tape is good for everything but ducts.

    If your ducts have holes or separated joins, you need to seal them, but use mastic, butyl tape, or other heat-approved tapes. Duct tape just won’t hold up to the challenge. 

  • Energy Saving Tip #168

    Where there’s lint, there may be fire.

    A blocked dryer vent is a fire hazard at worst and an energy suck at best. Keep your vent clear to keep your dryer working efficiently. 

  • Energy Saving Tip #313

    Look past your family to find the real culprit of spots.

    Dirty spots on your ceiling or carpet can be a sign of air leaks at wall and ceiling joints or floor/wall joists. If you find ’em, caulk ’em—and keep your heated or cool air inside.

  • Energy Saving Tip #469

    Become comfortable with the unknown.

    Your muffins will do just fine without you—better, in fact. Because every time you open your oven door to peek, the temperature drops 25° F. Bringing the temperature back up requires time and energy you wouldn’t otherwise need.

  • Energy Saving Tip #281

    Extra-dry applies to wine, not clothes.

    Keep an eye on your clothes so that you don’t keep your dryer running even after the load has dried. If you’re in the market for a dryer, look for one with an electronic sensor that shuts off the dryer when clothes are dry.

  • Energy Saving Tip #198

    Your fridge should be sealed up like Fort Knox.

    Refrigerator and freezer doors that aren’t tightly sealed mean you use a lot more energy to keep food cold. If you can easily move a dollar bill after shutting it into the door, it’s time to replace your seals.
