Energy Savings at Home ( Heating and Cooling )

How to save on electricity, heating, cooling and water bills. Energy Savings at Home ( Heating and Cooling )

There are a number of things you can do to save energy in every room of your home. Turning off the lights is always a good start to save energy and money. But, are you aware of other ways to reduce your energy bill even more?

Heating and cooling your home accounts for about 60% of your energy costs.

Tips

  • To save money on heating costs,reduce the temperature of your home a few degrees at night and when you’re away.
  • Keep blinds, shades and drapes closed during the hottest part of the day in the summer. (And open southfacing blinds on sunny winter days!)
  • Use area rugs on cold floors – if your feet are cold, your body will feel cold.
  • If you feel cool, put on a sweater rather than simply turning up the thermostat.
  • Clean or replace the air filter on your furnace every month to improve efficiency.
  • To save more on central AC costs, try cooling your home to only 24 or 25 °C instead of the low 20’s. Each degree below 26 °C will noticeably increase your electricity use!
  • Turn off unnecessary lights in the house (they produce a lot of heat which works against the AC.)
  • Conservation can be as easy as planting a tree. Plant leafy (deciduous) trees on the sunny side of your house. During the summer they provide shade, and in the winter they will shed their leaves to let the warming sunshine through. Pine or fir trees on the north side provide an energy-saving windbreak.
