  1. 1. 9 TIPS FOR REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMPTION INYOUR HOME HTTP://WWW.YOURAIREXPERTS.COM
  2. 2. #1 SWITCHYOUR LIGHT BULBS.  It is best to switch from incandescent to compact fluorescent light bulbs to save up to 80 percent on energy usage for lighting your home.
  3. 3. #2 TURN OFFTHE LIGHTS.  Turn lights off in rooms that aren’t being used. Consider using timers on bathroom, garage, and laundry room lights.
  4. 4. #3 REPLACE OUTDATED HVAC EQUIPMENT.  Most heating and cooling systems have a lifespan of 15-20 years. If yours is coming up on 15 years, research energy-efficient replacements that can yield significant energy savings.
  5. 5. #4 LOW-FLOW FAUCETS.  Use low-flow faucets in sinks, showers and baths. In addition to saving thousands of gallons of water per year, you’ll save energy by reducing the amount of hot water you use.
  6. 6. #5 SEALYOUR HOME’S ENVELOPE.  Warm air moves into cooler areas. Sealing the leaks in your home’s exterior prevents your warm air from escaping outside during the winter, and keeps hot air from infiltrating your home in the summer.
  7. 7. #6 UPGRADEYOUR INSULATION.  Is your insulation up to current energy efficiency guidelines? Check Energy Star’s Recommended Levels of Insulation map to check the R-values recommended for your geographic location. Start with the attic, crawl spaces and basement, and then work into the exterior walls.
  8. 8. #7 LOOK FORTHE ENERGY STAR.  When it’s time to replace appliances, always look for the Energy Star logo, which ensures they exceed minimum energy- efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy.
  9. 9. #8 PULLTHE PLUG.  Electronics and small appliances often consume small amounts of power even when they’re turned off. Use a power strip and turn it off when electronics aren’t being used.
