Save electricity: Energy Saving Tips

You don’t have to pinch pennies to save. By following a few simple steps, you can turn your New York dwelling into a launch pad for cleaner, and less expensive, energy. Save electricity and save the environment all at the same time.

How to save electricity: Breaking it down room-by-room

There are multiple ways to save electricity, and it’s probably easiest to break it down room-by-room, so you can picture the rooms in your home and how you can make a difference.

What better place to start than the place where families spend most of their time?

Kitchen

Ovens produce a lot of excess heat. Avoid heating your house when it’s not necessary by reducing the amount of time the oven is on by microwaving items before cooking.

To save money and to give your appliances the longest life possible, purchase energy-star appliances only.

Your refrigerator should be set at 38 degrees F, and at 5 degrees F in the freezer. Make sure when you kick the door shut because your arms are occupied with ingredients for your next culinary adventure that it shuts all the way. Also, decide what you want before you open the fridge, so you don’t waste time standing in front of it with the door wide open.

Living Room

In those hot New York summers, fans become a way of life. However they don’t do you much good unless you’re in the room. When you are running out the door to meet your friends for a drink or on the verge of being late for that Monday morning budget meeting, take extra care to remember to flip the fan off.

Save electricity by keeping your AC in check by setting your home to 78 degrees F in the summer months. It should be the perfect temperature for comfort and savings.

Bathroom

Electric razors, hairdryers, straighteners, curling irons – the list goes on and on. We hoard tons of appliances in our petite bathrooms. Leaving them plugged in may save a few extra seconds in the morning, but it’s sucking out energy that you aren’t even using. Unplug them for an easy way to save electricity.

A great remedy after dealing with kids and clients is letting a long, hot shower wash away the day. However heating water is one of the biggest expenses New Yorkers have on their energy bills. Turn down your hot-water thermostat to 120 degrees, and look into energy-efficient pumps to save electricity.

Bedroom

Your iPhone and laptop are rarely out of eye shot, which means their chargers can’t be far either. As with bathroom appliances, chargers suck out energy just by being plugged in. Unplug them when they aren’t in use.

When the nights turn cool and it feels better outside than inside, pop open those windows and breathe in the New York air. Really, open your windows and use the fan whenever possible.
